Ni–Zn ferrite powders were synthesized by self-propagating high temperature synthesis (SHS) method. X-ray diffraction, TEM and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM) were used to characterize the phase composition, microstructure and magnetic properties of the combustion products. The effect of the combustion temperature ($T_c$), the major parameter of the SHS process, on particle size, phase composition and magnetic properties of the products was also studied. The results showed that particle size grew with the increasing combustion temperature. The maximum saturation magnetization, $M_s$, increased with combustion temperature indicating the growth of grain size and high degree of ferritization, while residual magnetization, $M_r$, and coercive force, $H_c$, decreased. Compared with other methods, Ni0.35Zn0.65Fe2O4 ferrite powders with improved magnetic properties can be obtained by SHS at 1000°C.
