AbstractDifferent synthetic routes have been tested to prepare bulk doped ZnO. The doping elements were Mn, Fe and Co. We were able to prepare single-phase compounds at high temperature by using ceramic procedures and at very low temperature using a sol–gel method. No ferromagnetism has been observed for these samples. In contrast, spontaneous magnetization is observed in samples obtained from non-optimal conditions and exhibiting secondary phases. Magnetic impurities have been easily identified for Fe- and Co-doped samples. However, the nature of the room temperature magnetic impurity for the Mn-based compound is not so clear and different possibilities are discussed. We have also checked the effect of the grain size on the magnetic properties by synthesizing nano-materials using a sol–gel route. The single-phase nano-compounds are also not ferromagnets showing similar properties to the well-sintered polycrystalline materials.
