The synthesis, the chemical, morphological, structural characterization and the magnetic properties of amorphous iron oxyhydroxy phosphate nanoparticles are reported. Aggregated spherical particles (diameter: 5-12nm) are obtained showing a ferrihydrite-like behavior similar to that of the bacterial ferritin iron oxyhydroxy-phosphate core. A superparamagnetic behavior is observed with blocking temperatures ranging from ∼20 to ∼50K depending on the iron and phosphate content. © 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
