Doping magnesium ferrites (MgFe2 O4) with Mn, Co and Ni, which were synthesized by sol gel method using citric acid and polyvinyl alcohol (P VA) and calcined at 500oC, showed interesting electrochemical featur es based on their cyclic voltammetric (CV) characteristics using 5 µL ferrite – poly vinylidene fluoride in ethano l deposited on a screen printed carbon electrode (SPCE) in a mixture of 1.0 M KOH and ferricyanide solution recorded with a scan rate of 0.02 Vs -1. The Mn doped magnesium ferrite (x = 0.9) showed the most remarkable CV performance over other doped element (Co and Ni) and un-doped magnesiu m ferrites. The surface morphology of doped ferrites was studied by applying a field emissi on scanning electron microscope (FESEM) in conjunction with an energy dispersive X-ray spect roscopy (EDX) analysis. The results revealed that Mn posed the highest percentage on the surface ( ≈ 21.5 %), followed by Co (≈ 19.5%) and Ni ( ≈ 6.7%) with respect to x = 0.9 of M0.9Mg0.1Fe 2 O4 (M = Co, Mn and Ni) at 500oC calcination. The study showed the possibility of yielding semi conducting ferrites using own fabricated magnesium ferrite and its metal doping.
