We report structural, microstructural and magnetic studies of ZnFe2O4, MnFe2O4 and mixed Mn-Ni-Zn ferrites in nanoparticles and bulk forms. Polycrystalline samples were prepared by citrate combustion synthesis, which resulted in homogeneous and nanograin powders. Particle sizes estimated from the XRD and SEM were found to be below 100 nm for the calcined powders (600 degrees C) and above 300 nm range for the sintered (1200 degrees C) samples. Substitution of Ni and Zn for Mn enhanced the saturation magnetization and coercivity, because of the redistribution between octahedral and tetrahedral iron sites. Curie temperature were found to be higher for the calcined powders as compared to corresponding sintered samples due to particle size effects.
