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.​​​
