Abstract

We have synthesized Fe/Fe 3 C magnetic nanoparticles embedded in an amorphous carbon globule by pyrolysing of benzene, ferrocene and hydroboric acid. The diameter of the globules is ∼ 1 μm and that of Fe/Fe 3 C magnetic nanoparticles is ∼ 40 nm. The globules exhibit ferromagnetic like behavior and the magnetization as well as the coercivity is found to increases with decreasing temperature.
