The influence of trace water concentration on iron oxide nanoparticle size

The influence of trace water concentration on iron oxide nanoparticle size

Journal Article

Abstract

The size of iron oxide nanoparticles, prepared from the thermal decomposition of Fe(CO)5 in a high boiling solvent in the presence of oleic acid, is affected by water concentration, giving particles from sizes of 5.6 nm to as low as 2.2 nm.​
