Synthesis and Characterization of Monodisperse Fe-Co-Ni Colloidal Nanoparticles by Polyol Method


The monodisperse Fe-Co-Ni trimetalic powder has been synthesized by polyol method. The synthesized nanoparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive Xray spectroscopy (EDS) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR).The morphological features as studied using SEM revealed that the nanoparticles were agglomerated, crispy with porous.
