Abstract

A simple one step method is employed for the synthesis of CuFe2O4 nanoparticles (NPs) aided by utilizing egg albumin (EA) and aloe vera (AV) as solvents. The samples were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM), Thermo Gravimetric/Differential Thermal Anaysis (TG/DTA), Vibration Sample Magnetometer (VSM) and X-ray Photolectron Spectroscopy (XPS). XRD analysis of the samples sowed the presence of CuFe2O4 and CuO in the samples. The ambient VSM study proved the ferrimagnetism behavior of the CuFe2O4. TG/DTA was used to study the catalytic activity of the CuFe2O4 nanoparticles, the results revealed that a 78 °C reduction in the decomposition temperature of Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) was achieved while using 6% CuFe2O4 prepared using a mixed EA-AV and calcinated at 700 °C. Hence, CuFe2O4 can be potent catalytic agent in several environmental applications as an efficient catalyst.
