A new CoFe(2)O(4)-Cr(2)O(3)-SiO(2) fluorescent magnetic nanocomposite.


A combined sonochemical co-precipitaion method has been developed for the synthesis of a CoFe(2)O(4)-Cr(2)O(3)-SiO(2) magnetic nanocomposite. The synthesis involved the pre-synthesis of CoFe(2)O(4)-Cr(2)O(3) nanoparticles, which were subsequently coated with SiO(2) by treatment with tetraethyl orthosilicate. It was observed that the as-prepared CoFe(2)O(4… (More)
