The synthesis of Cd0.3Zn0.7Fe2O4 nanoparticles has been achieved by a simple thermal decomposition method from the inorganic precursor, Cd0.3Zn0.7Fe2(cin)3(N2H4)2, which was obtained by a novel precipitation method from the corresponding metal salts, cinnamic acid and hydrazine hydrate. The precursor was characterized by hydrazine and metal analyses, infrared spectral analysis and thermogravimetric analysis. Under appropriate annealing conditions, Cd0.3Zn0.7Fe2(cin)3(N2H4)2 yielded Cd0.3Zn0.7Fe2O4 nanoparticles, which were characterized for their size and structure using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopic (HRTEM), Selected Area Electron Diffraction (SAED) and Scanning Electron Microscopic (SEM) techniques.
