Abstract: Nanoparticles composed of iron oxides and iron salts were obtained from polymeric resins produced by polymerizing Fe2?-citrate and Fe3?-citrate complexes with ethylene glycol. The citric acid:Fe molar ratio was varied to obtain different synthesis conditions. The materials were treated at 450 C for 2 h to obtain nanoparticles, which were characterized by XRD, Mo¨ssbauer spectroscopy, FEG, CHNS, atomic absorption and surface area through N2 physisorption. Rhodamine B photo degradation in the presence of these nanoparticles and hydrogen peroxide was carried out to analyze the possible behavior of nanoparticles as heterogeneous Fenton reactants. UV–visible spectroscopy revealed that the catalytic activity in the presence of nanoparticles obtained with a citric acid:Fe molar ratio of 12:1 was the condition that provided the best results in this work.
