The magnetically-assisted growth of the amorphous bimetallic iron–nickel wire-like nanostructures is presented in this work. The applied process is based on a simple reduction reaction of aqueous solutions containing Fe2+ and Ni2+ ions with NaBH4 in the presence of an external magnetic field of about 0.05 T. The morphology, chemical composition, and magnetic properties of as-prepared Fe–Ni nanostructures have been determined by means of scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffractometry, and vibrating sample magnetometry. The obtained experimental data indicate that the as-prepared samples exhibit quite complex architectures i.e., they comprise of nanoparticles aligned in almost straight lines. In addition, they reveal the typical core-shell structures where the amorphous bimetallic alloy cores are covered by thin amorphous oxide shells. In turn, the magnetic measurements show that the Fe–Ni wire-like nanostructures behave as typical ferromagnetic nanomaterials and their magnetic parameters like saturation magnetizations and coercivities are strictly dependent on their sizes and chemical compositions.
