Abstract

Zinc substitution is often proposed as an efficient strategy to improve the performances of spinel ferrite nanoparticles, particularly related to their application as theranostic agents. In this work, a series of 8 nm spinel ferrite nanoparticles of formula CoxZnyFe3–(x+y)O4 is synthesized by thermal decomposition with the purpose of investigating the role of Zn2+ ions in modifying the structural and magnetic properties. Contrary to most of the literature on this subject, where the sum of Co and Zn is kept constant (x + y = 1), here, the amount of Co is maintained at ca. x = 0.6, corresponding to the maximum of magnetic anisotropy of the Zn-undoped system, whereas the amount of Zn is progressively varied along the series from y = 0.05 to 0.4.
