The formation mechanism of GdFeO3 nanoparticles by varying of the hydrothermal conditions has been investigated. The mean size of coherent scattering regions of GdFeO3 was determined to be equal to 53, 68
and 73 nm. The observed regularities allowed us to assume the oriented attachment of nanocrystals.
Keywords: nanoparticles, hydrothermal synthesis, nucleation, phase formation.
