Solvothermal Synthesis of Magnetic Spinel Ferrites

Mohammad Rafenia, Ashkan Bigham, Seyed Ali HassanzadehTabrizi


At present, solvothermal fabrication method has widely been applied in the synthesis of spinel ferrite
nanoparticles (SFNs), which is mainly because of its great advantages such as precise control over
size, shape distribution, and high crystallinity that do not require postannealing treatment. Among
various SFNs, Fe3O4 nanoparticles have attracted tremendous attention because of their favorable
physical and structural properties which are advantageous, especially in biomedical applications,
among which the vast application of these materials as targeted drug delivery systems, hyperthermia,
and imaging agents in cancer therapy can be mentioned. The main focus of this study is to present
an introduction to solvothermal method and key synthesis parameters of SFNs through this synthesis
route. Moreover, most recent progress on the potential applications of Fe3O4 nanoparticles as the
most important compound among the spinel ferrites family members is discussed
