Abstract

Iron is an abundant and environmentally friendly element. Iron oxides are one of the most important functional materials used as magnetic materials, catalysts, pigments, etc. For example, α-Fe2O3, α-FeOOH, γ-Fe2O3, and Fe3O4 are used as red pigments, combustion catalysts, toner of copying machines, magnetic recording medium of video-tapes, and contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging, respectively.
