A citric acid anionic surfactant has been applied for nano manganese ferrite (MnFeO3) fabrication using sol gel method. The calcinations have been varied for 300, 600 and 800oC. The UVDR (UV-Vis Diffused Reflectance) analysis shows a high absorptive band gap after 400 nm for the 600oC calcinated MnFeO3. The DTA (Differential Thermal Analysis) profiles exhibit remarkably trapped volatile matters (H2O, CO2, and NO2) in the fabricated MnFeO3 under sol gel heat treatment at 100oC and the peaks disappeared as the calcination increased to 600oC. As the temperature elevated from 100 to 300oC, the absorption peaks of volatile components are disappeared as demonstrated clearly by the FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) spectra of the fabricated material, which 3393 cm-1 corresponded to OH group, 1624 cm-1 to CO group, and 1384 cm-1 to NO group. The XRD (X-Ray Diffraction) spectra show clearly the alteration process from amorphous to crystalline structure as the calcinations increased from 300 to 600oC. In addition, the TEM (Transmission Electron Microscope) analysis exhibits parts of the fabricated MnFeO3 found in cubic nano size of 15-40 nm under interested calcinations and the result is in agreement with that obtained by XRD investigation.
