Magnetic multilayered, onion-like, hetero-structured nanoparticles are interesting model systems for studying magnetic exchange coupling phenomena. In this work, we synthesized heterostructured magnetic nanopartides composed of two, three, or four components using iron oxide seeds for the subsequent deposition of manganese oxide. The MnO layer was allowed either to passivate fully in air to form an outer layer of Mn(3)O(4) or to oxidize partially to form MnO vertical bar Mn(3)O(4) double layers. Through control of the degree of passivation of the seeds, particles with up to four different magnetic layers can be obtained (i.e., FeO vertical bar Fe(3)O(4)vertical bar MnO vertical bar Mn(3)O(4)). Magnetic characterization of the samples confirmed the presence of the different magnetic layers.
