Abstract

Binary and ternary metal-oxide nanoparticles have been prepared by thermal decomposition of the appropriate metal (M = Fe, Mn, Pd, Cu, Al, Gd) compounds in the presence of oleic acid, oleylamine, and 1,2-hexadecanediol as an accelerating agent. The metal percentage and the particle size were investi...

Abstract: Binary and ternary metal-oxide nanoparticles have been prepared by thermal decomposition of the appropriate metal (M = Fe, Mn, Pd, Cu, Al, Gd) compounds in the presence of oleic acid, oleylamine, and 1,2-hexadecanediol as an accelerating agent. The metal percentage and the particle size were investigated as a function of the starting composition. The NP composition is controlled by the relative reaction rates of the particular precursors, such that prediction of NP composition from reagent ratios is not straightforward. An understanding of reaction rate limitations allows for alternative synthesis to be developed.
