We have fabricated undoped CuO, Co0.1Ni0.07Zn0.04Cu0.79O and Co0.08Ni0.07Zn0.04Mg0.03Cu0.78O nanoparticles through thermal decomposition of their respective inorganic copper creatinate hydrazinate and mixed metal doped copper creatinate hydrazinate precursors which were prepared by the co-precipitation method and characterized through EDS, ICP-AES, IR, and TG-DTA analysis. Techniques such as EDS, ICP-AES, FT-IR, XRD, XPS, TEM, SEM, BET, and VSM analysis were employed to characterize the composition, structural phase, chemical state, morphological, textural, and magnetic properties of the nanoparticles.
