Abstract

In this study, Fe3O4 nanoparticles and magnetic nanocomposite of NaP zeolite@Fe3O4 with different ratio were prepared, then in the second step functionalized with 2-aminopyridine as a basic group. All samples were characterized by Fourier transfer infrared (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscope (SEM), Energy dispersive X-Ray analysis (EDX), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Burner Emmet Taller (BET), Vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and thermal analysis. The SEM graphs showed that much of Fe3O4 was successfully coated by the NaP zeolite layer. Also, the results show that the magnetism of the products is stable with added zeolite. The BET and TEM confirmed the presence of mesoporous phase in the surface of NaP zeolite@Fe3O4 and preparation a micro-meso structure.
