Graphical Abstract:


Background and Introduction: Metal oxides (MOs) have been extensively used in a large range of engineering and medical applications.

Methods: FeCo nanoparticles (NPs) were successfully synthesized by the solgel method in the presence of a powerful reducing agent-sodium borohydride (NaBH4). The structure, morphology, and optical properties of NPs were analyzed by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field effect scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) at room temperature.

Result: The XRD spectrum showed the body center cubic (BCC) structure of the samples after heat treatment at 500 °C. The SEM analysis exhibited that the particle size of as-synthesized and annealed samples was approximately 40 nm and 22 nm, respectively.

Conclusion: The TEM investigations showed the rod-shaped sample of annealed NPs. The optical studies of the FTIR analysis revealed the starching bound of Fe-Co at the frequencies of 673 cm-1, 598 cm-1, and 478 cm-1.

Keywords: FeCo, Nanorods, NaBH4, sol-gel method, morphology properties, crystal structure.
