|Abstract:||Well dispersed and fine barium ferrite (BaFe12O19) powders have been successfully prepared by mechanically activating co-precipitated precursors, followed by calcination at 700 and 800 °C. When mechanically activated in a sodium chloride matrix for 20 hours, nanocrystallites of BaFe12O19, α- Fe2O3 and a spinel (γ-Fe2O3) phase of < 10 nm in size were triggered in the co-precipitated precursor. Single phase barium ferrite platelets 50-100 nm in size were developed upon subsequent calcination at 800 °C for 1 hour. The resulting barium ferrite powder exhibits an intrinsic coercivity ((i)H(c)) of 436.7 kA m-1 and a saturation magnetization (M(s)) of 67.8 A m2 kg-1. These magnetic properties compare favorably with those of the materials derived from conventional calcination of the co-precipitated precursor without prior mechanical activation, which led to very poor powder characteristics.|
