  • Analysis of Iron Oxidation in Garnets 

    Emerson, Erica (2011-02-16)
    Abstract The oxidation state of iron indicates the amount of oxygen present when a mineral is formed. If the environment was abundant in oxygen, many of the minerals in the assemblage will contain oxidized iron, Fe3+. If ...
  • SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CRYSTALLINE MONODISPERSED γ-Fe2O3 NANOPARTICLES 

    Edwards, Kimberly (2013-12-28)
    γ-Fe2O3 maghemite nanoparticles were synthesized via the homogeneous thermal decomposition of iron pentacarbonyl. This synthesis took place in the presence of a capping molecule, octanoic acid, and a mild oxidant, ...
