Micro- and nanosized zinc ferrite particles were prepared in RF thermal plasma conditions. Ethanol solutions of the mixture of zinc- and iron-nitrates were used as precursors. In the experiments, effects of synthesis conditions on the properties of products were investigated. The products were characterized for chemical and phase composition, morphology and magnetic properties. Zinc ferrite particles having ferrimagnetic properties were produced which refers to formation of zinc ferrites of inverse spinel structure in particular conditions.
