Lithium ferrite particle/organic hybrid was synthesized in situ from iron-organic and lithium-organic compounds below 100 °C. Spinel ferrite particle/organic hybrid was synthesized by hydrolyzing a mixture of iron (III) 3-allylacetylacetonate (IAA) and lithium acrylate (LA). X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that the crystallinity of spinel particle was dependent on the polymerization treatment and the hydrolysis conditions. The saturation magnetization of hybrid increased with increasing methylhydrazine and water amount of hydrolysis. Nanocrystalline lithium ferrite particle about 5 nm was dispersed in the organic matrix. The hybrid showed neither remanence nor coercive force at room temperature. The magnetization versus field/temperature HIT curves from 100 to 300 K were superimposed on the same curve and satisfied the Langevin equation. The zero-field-cooled (ZFC) and field-cooled (FC) magnetization curve revealed that the blocking temperature was about 75 K. The remanent magnetization and coercive field of the hybrid were 8.9 A·m2/kg and 26.3 kA/m, respectively, at 10 K.
