Mössbauer spectroscopy provides the information about local surroundings of probed iron atoms. By the interpretation of Mössbauer spectra and its hyperfine Mössbauer parameters we can estimate the valence state, oxidation state, spin state, magnetic state of prepared samples.
Vibrating Sample Magnetometry
The magnetic measurements provide information about superparamagnetic and blocked state of as prepared magnetic nanoparticles. By the analysis of ZFC-FC curves we can extract the value of blocking temperature and predict the mutual magnetic interactions between the nanoparticles. The hysteresis loops interpretation and hysteresis parameters support the data retrieved from ZFC-FC measurements and confirm the magnetic nature of samples.
Electron Paramagnetic resonance
Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) is an outstanding technique to probe/study unpaired electron and radical centers in materials. Detecting and investigating these paramagnetic species is essential for wide range of potential applications. EPR spectra signifies the spin state, which is dependent on the type of ligand and their geometry such as tetrahedral, octahedral etc.
Transmission electron microscopy
Transmission electron microscopy enables direct observation of the specimen under near native conditions. The specimen does not undergo any chemical treatment and the data present direct observation of the sample immobilized in the solution of interest.
