Advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology are centered in the control of size and shape of nanoparticles, as well as attainment of the extended arrangement of nanoparticles in different structures. One dimensional nanostructured magnetic materials are interesting because of their enhanced magnetic properties and potential applications such as information storage and gas sensor. The advanced electronic applications of Fe3O4 magnetic nanomaterials are considered to require improvement in the powder processing, particularly, meticulous particle control in the nanometer range and phase purity. Structural properties of Fe3O4 nanoparticles were synthesized via sol-gel protocol, the morphology and particles size were determined by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope, transmission electron microscope, energy dispersive X-ray, UV- diffuse reflectance spectrophotometer and particle size analyzer. The structure of as prepared Fe3O4 nanoparticles was used for photocatalytic applications.
