	  abstract     = {Magnetic powder of Sr-ferrite was prepared by
conventional and sol-gel auto-combustion methods. In conventional
method, strontium carbonate and ferric oxide powders were mixed
together and then mixture was calcined. In sol-gel auto-combustion
method, a solution containing strontium nitrate, ferric nitrate and
citric acid was heated until the combustion took place automatically;
then, as-burnt powder was calcined. Thermal behavior, phase
identification, morphology and magnetic properties of powders
obtained by these two methods were compared by DTA, XRD, SEM
and VSM techniques. According to the results of DTA analysis,
formation temperature of Sr-ferrite obtained by conventional and solgel
auto-combustion methods were 1300°C and 1000°C, respectively.
XRD results confirmed the formation of pure Sr-ferrite at the
mentioned temperatures. Plate and hexagonal-shape particles of Srferrite
were observed using SEM. The Sr-ferrite powder obtained by
sol-gel auto-combustion method had saturation magnetization of
66.03 emu/g and coercivity of 5731 Oe in comparison with values of
58.20 emu/g and 4378 Oe obtained by conventional method.
