    Fe3O4 nanoparticles were synthesized by a wet chemical method using Fe(III)/Fe(II) - hydrazine dihydrochloride systems. The structure, morphology, and magnetic properties of magnetite were examined by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), infrared spectroscopy (IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Mössbauer spectroscopy and superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). Almost all the particles exhibit superparamagnetic like properties at room temperature. This behavior can be correlated with the size of the particles which ranged between 20-70 nm.
