The combination of 1-adamantanecarboxylic acid and tri-alkylphosphine was applied to produce monodisperse FePd nanoparticles by the polyol reduction of palladium acetylacetonate and thermally decomposition of iron pentacarbonyl. Images of high resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) data indicate a highly monodisperse and crystalline nature of the FePd nanoparticles. Magnetic studies performed by Quantum Design SQUID magnetometer show that FePd (16nm) nanoparticles are superparamagnetic at room temperature.
