Hydrothermal synthesis has been used systematically to produce α-Fe203 nanoparticles, via an intermediate β-FeOOH phase, as a function of temperature, time and surfactant concentration. The nanoparticles were examined using the complementary techniques of X-ray diffractometry (XRD) and reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED). The relative merits of XRD and RHEED are reported on, supported by conventional transmission electron microscopy, to appraise the reaction products.
