Single phase nano-crystalline lithium cadmium ferrite Li0.35Cd0.3Fe2.35O4 is synthesized by a modified citrate gel precursor technique in different pH media. The modified citrate precursor technique reduces the formation of the impurity phase α-Fe2O3 in the inverse spinel phase of lithium ferrite. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) confirmed the average crystallite size. As-prepared sample shows the paramagnetic behaviour of M–H curve measured by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The coercivity (Hc) and magnetization (M) both increase with decrease in temperature from 300 K to 80 K. Temperature dependent magnetic properties below the Curie point are defined by the Bloch's law and Neel relaxation relations. The effect of annealing on magnetic properties at different temperature is studied.
