Abstract

Synthesis of ultrafine Co₁-(x+y)NixZnyFe₂O₄ magnetic nanoparticles with different chemical compositions is essential to study the magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) as a treatment in which the superparamagnetic behaviour of materials is beneficial. In this paper, Co₁-(x+y)NiZnyFe₂O₄ magnetic nanoparticles with different x and y amounts were synthesized to find out a tuning pattern for magnetic properties, especially anisotropy constant to gain the best heating efficiency. We proved that the co-presence of ions will greatly affect the magnetic performance of our superparamagnetic nanoparticles in which Co₀.₅₉Zn₀.₄₁Fe₂O₄ for values of x = 0.00 and y = 0.41 exhibits the highest magnetic anisotropy constant after CoFe₂O₄. This success in customizing magnetic properties to reach high magnetic properties by using less toxic materials might be another good starting point for researchers to focus more on their possible applications.
