Co3V2O8 is a member of kagomé staircase oxides, represented by general formula M3V2O8 (M = Ni, Co, Mn). It attracted great attention due to strong magnetic anisotropy, magnetic phase transition, genuine macroscopic quantum effects, strong quantum fluctuations, low-temperature ferroelectricity, field-induced magnetic transitions, complicated phase diagram and displays long-range magnetic order because of geometrical frustration. Different routes to prepare the frustrated magnetic material was reported such as floating zone technique and conventional high temperature method. Co3V2O8 (International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD): 16-675) was synthesized with Co3O4 (ICDD: 80-1536) as binary phase by microwave assisted preparation using Co(NO3)2 ·6H2O and NH4VO3. The synthesized material was characterization by powder X-ray diffraction, the Fourier transform: infrared spectroscopy, and thermogravimetric-differential thermal analysis.
