Solid solutions of Co1-xZnxFe2O4 and Ni1-xZnxFe2O4 (0 ˂ x ˂ 1) nanoparticles were synthesized by sol-gel self-propagating combustion method. The obtained single cubic phase product has a specific surface area 25 m2∙g−1 to 33 m2∙g−1 and crystallite size 25 nm to 40 nm. Lattice parameters change linearly from 8.371 A (CoFe2O4) and 8.337 A (NiFe2O4) to 8.431 A (ZnFe2O4). The saturation magnetization (Ms) changes non-linearly from 60.8 emu∙g−1 (CoFe2O4), respectively, from 35.6 emu∙g−1 (NiFe2O4) to 3.3 emu∙g−1 (ZnFe2O4) reaching maximal value 76.1 emu∙g−1 for Co0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4 and 64.9 emu∙g−1 – for Ni0.6Zn0.4Fe2O4.
