Synthesis, structural, magnetic properties and heating efficiency of γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles have been investigated. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Mössbauer spectroscopy show that the obtained nanoparticles are mainly composed of maghemite phase (γ-Fe2O3). Williamson-Hall method shows that the crystallite is around 14nm.The specific absorption rate (SAR) under an altemating magnetic field is investigated as a function of frequency. A highest SAR value of l2W/g for frequency 523 kHz was obtained.
