Keywords: Iron oxide, Nanoparticles, Surface area, Synthesis, Application


Iron Nanoparticles also known as nanoparticles of iron oxide have been recognized in various sectors
mainly because of their size and high surface area which is available for utilization. In this paper, we have
givena brief review of the synthesis technique and have given a brief idea about its applications. Given the
current interest in iron nanoparticles, this review is intended to provide information on the synthesis and
applications of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles. We have given a brief idea about Physical methods, Chemical
Methods, and Biological Methods for synthesis. They mainly include techniqueslike electron beam lithography,
Co-precipitation, Sol-gel,Hydrothermal, Microemulsions, and microbial incubation for iron nanoparticles
