Nanopowders of nickel ferrite doped with cobalt were synthesized by co-precipitation using a 3 % KOH solution as a precipitant. The effects of different annealing regimes on the composition and particle size of Ni1-xCoxFe2O4 were studied. It was established that with annealing at t = 1000 °C for 2 h single-phase products were formed with a crystallite size of 30–50 nm. The saturation magnetization and the coercive force increased as the content of the dopant increased from 50.3 emu/g and 51.94 Oe for NiFe2O4 to 80.45 emu/g and 848.32 Oe for CoFe2O4.
