Abstract:Magnetite nanocrystals have been synthesized successfully with a one-pot method in high temperature organic solvent. The reaction parameters of the reaction were investigated to optimize the preparation for controlling the size and shape of monodisperse nanocrystals. A mechanism is proposed for better understanding the formation of nanocrystals in organic solvent at high temperature.
