Zn 1− x Co x Al 2 O 4 (x= 0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0) spinel nanoparticles weresynthesized by a liquid-feed flame spray pyrolysis (LF-FSP) method by combustingmetallorganic precursor solutions to produce nanopowders with precise composition control.The precursor solutions were aerosolized into a methane/oxygen flame where it wascombusted in an oxygen-rich environment to result in nanopowders at a single step. Thenanopowders were analyzed by x-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, ...
