High-temperature solution phase reaction of iron(III)-furoate in sunflower oil, in the presence of trichloroacetic acid and 1,2-hexadecylamine leads to iron(III) oxide (amorphous and γ-Fe2O3) nanoparticles with sizes about 1.3 nm in diameter (method "A"), and about 5.5 nm (amorphous Fe2O3) from the "sunflower oil/oxadiazol" system (method "B"). © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
