Preparation and characterisation of γ-Fe2O3 as tape recording material
Optimum conditions for the preparation of tape recording quality γ-Fe2O3 by the thermal decomposition of ferrous oxalate dihydrate have been established. Formation of the intermediate Fe3O4 which is most important in forming γ-Fe2O3 takes place only in the presence of water vapour. Various stages of decomposition have been characterised by DTA, TG, DTG, and x-ray powder diffraction. The method for the preparation of acicular γ-Fe2O3 that matches very well with the commercial tape recording material has been developed.
