The investigation on the formation and morphology changes of magnetite nanoparticles is done in this work in order to estimate the origin of earlier observed phenomena resulting in the formation of 2D shaped nanoparticles of magnetite at certain conditions during one-step precipitation of magnetite nanoparticles from Mohr' s salt solution with strong base (NaOH). The impact of temperature, mixing and amount of base added during the precipitation reaction is evaluated in this study. Moreover, the intermediate phases formed during the precipitation reaction are studied. For characterization of the prepared particles, SEM-EDS, XRD and PCCS analysis are performed on prepared particles.Keywords: Magnetite, Structure tailoring, Nano-sized flakes, Mohric salt
