In recent years certain ferromagnetic materials called ferrites have been commercially available and are gaining increasing importance in various applications. The chemical constitution of the ferrites is expressed by the formula MO•Fe2O3, where M symbolizes a metal. Thus magnetite, FeO•Fe2O3, is a natural ferrite known since antiquity, but the important step of replacing FeO by oxides of other metals was carried out but recently and led to the development of numerous artificial ferrites.
