Purpose: The aim of this work is to present the results of the study of the local structure of iron nanoparticlwith oxide shell which uses EXAFS method that apply synchrotronic radiation.Design/methodology/approach: The samples used in the carried out analysis were as follows: pure iropowder, pure iron powder containing nanoparticles and pure iron powder containing nanoparticles subjected 224 hours of grinding.Findings: The local structure of iron nanoparticles with oxide shell were found.Research limitations/implications: It was not enough time to measure O:K edge.Practical implications: The analysis of spectra does not reveal any iron oxides in samples. More accuraresults would be obtained at oxygen K edge.Originality/value: It was proved that iron nanoparticles with oxide shell samples had the local structucharacteristic for metallic iron.
