In this study, low temperature preparation conditions for Co2Z (3BaO·2CoO·12Fe2O3) particles were investigated by using alkaline halide method. The obtained particles were characterized by using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Many factors such as the metal compositions, heating temperature, heating and cooling rates, and amount of flux reagents were changed for the preparation. The X-ray diffraction analysis indicated that (1) the metal compositions, (2) flux reagent, and (3) heating rate were important to obtain Co2Z at low temperature using the alkaline halide method. Nearly monophasic Co2Z was formed under the following conditions: metal compositional ratio of Ba : Co: Fe = 3.0 : 1.5 : 24 with 10wt% BaCl2 flux and rapid heating to 1200 °C for 6 hours. Co2Z powders mixed with an EPDM rubber were pressed to a sheet form. The electromagnetic properties of rubber sheets were examined to apply to use as an electromagnetic wave absorber.
