There are various techniques to synthesize zinc doped barium ferrite nanoparticles. The previous literature shows that co- precipitation is considered extraordinary as compared to other techniques for synthesizing zinc doped barium ferrite nanoparticles. Zinc doped barium ferrite nanoparticles is a ferromagnetic material and has attracted attention in many fields such as electronics due to its multiple applications. In this research, co-precipitation method was used to synthesize Zinc doped Barium ferrite nanoparticles and followed by plasma treatment. The Barium chloride dehydrate (BaCl2.2H2), Zinc chloride (ZnCl2) and Ferric chloride (FeCl2) were used as the starting materials in the synthesis of ZnBaFe2O4. The aim of this technique was to evaluate and discuss the properties of untreated and plasma treated zinc doped barium ferrite nanoparticles. These samples were investigated by using different techniques like X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Ultra violet visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis) and Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). These techniques were used for the study of morphology of plasma treated and untreated nanoparticles and also used to elaborate the structural, chemical, and physical properties of the synthesized nanoparticles. Optical characterization was done by using UV-spectroscopy. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used to identify the organic, inorganic and polymeric material
