Abstract: Yttrium nano ferrite YxFe2-xO4 (where x= 0.2) Nanoparticles were synthesized by a simple and low cost effective method involving sol-gel auto combustion technique at low temperature. Yttrium ferrite is a typical used as garnet magnets ferrite material with a completely inverse spinel structure, has a large number of applications. The present work is to study effect of annealing temperature on yttrium nano ferrite properties of the synthesized samples. The role of the effect of different annealing temperature shows the formation of crystal phase, which was identified by X-ray diffraction method. The annealing temperature 300 0C, 500 0C, 700 0C and 900 0C show the phase formation and particle size changes with annealing temperature. We report the synthesis of nanoparticles, spinel with crystalline size is in the range of 15 to 41nm. The FTIR characterization shows the bond formation and synthesized material is ferrite.
