In this work, the method of quantitative ferrite phase control, which is based on thermomagnetometric analysis of the ferrite samples in magnetic field, was developed. The magneto-phase transitions in LiZn and LiTi ferrites with chemical formulas Li0.5(1 x )Fe2.50.5 xZnxO4 and Li0.5(1+ x )Fe2.51.5 xTixO4 were studied, and their phase compositions were analyzed by both the developed method and X-ray diffraction analysis. It was shown that the thermomagnetometry method compared to X-ray diffraction analysis allows to examine more precisely the magnetic phases in synthesized ferrites with inhomogeneous phase composition. However, a complex analysis, using both X-ray and thermomagnetometry methods, will be the most optimal in case of the formation of non-magnetic and poor magnetic phases.
