Synthesis and Characterization of Magnetic Iron Sulfide Nanowires
The characterization and synthesis of magnetic iron sulfide nanowires were analyzed. In order to synthesize Fe1-xS nanowires, a hybrid composite with ethylenediamine was prepared by solvothermal procedure. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images of the composite show the presence of high yield of lengthy nanowires with diameter in the range of 80-150 nm. A saturation magnetization of 6 emu g-1 was achieved with an applied field of 8000 Oe. It was found that the electrical resistivity measurements on pressed pellets of the nanowires show semiconducting behavior at room temperature.
