Highly crystalline, nanometre sized ZnFe2O4 particles with different diameters, 6.6 and 14.8 nm, were prepared by forced hydrolysis in a polyol medium. The DC magnetic properties exhibit a strong dependence on the particle size as a result of the unusual cation distribution. They clearly establish their superparamagnetic character at room temperature and the occurrence of ferrimagnetic or ferromagnetic ordering at low temperature. The magnetization is found to increase with grain size reduction. The Fe-57 Mossbauer spectra were recorded at 300 and 4.5 K. There is no evidence for the presence of the Fe2+ charge state, confirming the perfect stoichiometry of the two samples. At 300 K, the Mossbauer spectra consist of doublets due to the superparamagnetic behaviour whereas at 4.5 K they reveal a magnetically blocked state. Mossbauer spectra at 10 K in an external 6 T magnetic field applied parallel to the direction of the gamma rays clearly show a close to collinear Neel-like ferrimagnetic ordering for the 6.6 nm particles and a canted Yafet-Kittel-like ferrimagnetic ordering for the 14.8 nm ones.
