Researchers from TUBITAK Report on Findings in Polymer Research (SrFe12O19/Zn0.65Ni0.25Cu0.1Fe2O4 Core-Shell Nanocomposite: Synthesis, Chracterization and Catalytic Activity in Aqueous Solution)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Researchers detail new data in Polymer Research. According to news reporting originating from Kocaeli, Turkey, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "SrFe12O19/Zn0.65Ni0.25Cu0.1Fe2O4 core-shell nanocomposite has been successfully synthesized by sol-gel autocombustion (for SrFe12O19, core) and hydrothermal methods (for Zn0.65Ni0.25Cu0.1Fe2O4, shell). The products were characterized by X-ray powder diffractometer, transmission electron microscopy, fourier transform infrared spectrsocopy, vibrating sample magnetometer, Ultraviolet-visible specroscopy and inductively coupled plasma."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from TUBITAK, "Both X-ray powder diffraction, transmission electron microscopy results showed that Zn0.65Ni0.25Cu0.1Fe2O4 shell is on the surface of the SrFe12O19 core. The variations between the magnetic properties of the precursors and nanocomposite may be explained by interphase interactions at the surface of two ferrites. The properties of the SrFe12O19/Zn0.65Ni0.25Cu0.1Fe2O4 core-shell nanocomposite were favourable in its separation, recycling and reuse after reaction."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The catalytic activity of SrFe12O19/Zn0.65Ni0.25Cu0.1Fe2O4 core-shell nanocomposite in the presence of NaBH4 were tested against methyl violet."
