In this paper, we report a facile, an environmental friendly ultrasonic-assisted hydrothermal route for preparation of goethite flower structures using Fe nanopowders at low temperature (85°C). The flower structure consisted of tens of hundreds of nanowires and such structures can further self-assemble with the flake with micro size area. Structural, morphological, and elemental analysis revealed that the products consisted of flower-like structures with high structural uniformity, good crystal quality, and high yields. Influencing factors such as the reaction temperature, pH value, and the deposition time were systematically investigated. A possible formation mechanism was proposed on the basis of the experimental results. Magnetic measurements showed that the as-obtained goethite flowers exhibited weakly ferromagnetic characteristics at room temperature, which were quite different from those of the corresponding bulk materials.
