Manganese ferrite, MnFe2O4 have been prepared by a soft mechanochemical route from mixture of (a) Mn(OH)(2) and alpha-Fe2O3 and (b) Mn(OH)(2) and Fe(OH)(3) powders in a planetary ball mill. The mixture was activated for varying duration. Soft mechanochemical reaction leading to formation of the MnFe2O4 spinel phase was followed by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, scanning and transmission microscopy and magnetization measurements. The spinel phase formation was first observed after 12 h of milling and its formation was completed after 25 h in both cases. The synthesized MnFe2O4 ferrite has a nanocrystalline structure with a crystallite size of about 40 and 50 nm respectively for cases (a) and (b). There are five Raman active modes. Measurements after 25 h of milling show magnetization values of 70.4 emu/g and 71.1 emu/g respectively for cases (a) and (b). In order to understand better the whole process of phase formation, Mossbauer measurements were done. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. A...ll rights reserved.
