Ferrous-zine ferrites, ZnxFe3−xO4(0<x<1) have been prepared using a new method involving the stabilization of FeO prior to its reaction with ZnO and Fe2O3. Mössbauer studies on these ferrites have given results regarding the hyperfine fields, quadrupole interactions and isomer shifts in good agreement with those reported earlier on the same ferrites prepared by more elaberate and expensive techniques. This confirms the reliability of the new technique, which being much simpler, is less prone to errors in stoichiometry.
