A simple bottom-up route has been used to synthesize oval-shaped FeOx/ethylene glycol mesostructured nanosheets (see picture). These materials exhibit a low Morin transition temperature TM and ferromagnetism below this temperature due to the ultrathinness of the iron oxide slabs. The interlayer spacing of the iron oxide slabs can be easily controlled by employing different glycol molecules.
