Özet

Nanocrystalline particles of barium hexaferrite were synthesized by a sol-gel combustion route using nitrate-citrate gels prepared from metal nitrates and citric acid solutions with Fe/Ba molar ratio 12. The present paper aims to study the effect of addition of polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions with different molecular weights (MW: 400, 2000, and 10.000 g/mol) on magnetostructural properties of barium hexaferrite. The formation of the barium hexaferrite was inspected using X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) analysis, thermogravimetric (TGA) analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) analysis for magnetic measurements.
