INVESTIGATION OF SURFACES OF NOVEL IRON OXIDES WITH GRAIN AND GRAIN BOUNDARY
Hierarchical nano/microscale α-Fe2O3 iron oxide particle system was prepared by an improved and modified polyol method with the use of NaBH4 agent with high heat treatment at 900 °C in air. Here, α-Fe2O3 iron oxide particles with different shapes were analyzed. The morphologies of the surfaces of α-Fe2O3 iron oxide particles show the oxide structures with the different nano/microscale ranges of grain sizes. In this research, we have found that grain and grain boundary growth limits can be determined in α-Fe2O3 iron oxide structure. This leads to the possibility of producing new iron oxide structures with distribution of desirable size grain and grain boundary. With α-Fe2O3 structure obtained, the magnetic properties of the α-Fe2O3 iron oxide system are different from those of previously reported studies. in national and international studies.Keywords: Iron iron oxides, α-Fe2O3, chemical polyol methods, heat treatment.
