Abstract The fabrications of iron oxides nanoparticles using co-precipitation and gadolinium nanoparticles using water in oil microemulsion method are reported in this paper. Results of detailed phase analysis by XRD and Mössbauer spectroscopy are discussed. XRD analysis revealed that the crystallite size mean coherence length of iron oxides mainly γ-Fe2O3 in the Fe2O3 sample was 30 nm, while in Fe2O3-SiO2 where the ε-Fe2O3 phase dominated it was only 14 nm. Gd-SiO2 nanoparticles were found to be completely amorphous, according to XRD. The samples showed various shapes of hysteresis loops and different coercivities. Differences in the saturation magnetization MS correspond to the chemical and phase composition of the sample materials. However, we observed that MS was not reached in the case of Fe2O3-SiO2, while for Gd-SiO2 sample the MS value was extremely low. Therefore we conclude that only unmodified Fe2O3 nanoparticles are suitable for intended biosensing application in vitro e.g. detection of viral nucleic acids and the phase purification of this sample for this purpose is not necessary.
