Abstract. The incorporation of nanoparticles in small amounts has been shown to have a significant influence on the properties of the materials. This can contribute to the creation of innovative and sustainable structures. The object of this research is the synthesis of Fe3O4 nano particles and the physical treatment of the chemical mixture for application in cementitious materials. The chemical synthesis was performed from the mixture of ferric chloride (FeCl3), potassium iodide (KI) and ammonia solution (25%), on temperature and controlled agitation. The addition of Nano Fe3O4 particles improves the cementitious materials microstructure, enhancing its durability and improving its mechanical properties.
