This work is devoted to the production of microparticles via pulsed laser ablation from a solid cobalt target immersed in three different solutions of distilled water as well as in ethanol and in acetone, to study the effect of liquid media on the physical properties and structure of particles. The samples were characterized using XRD, SEM and particle size analysis. More than simply Co particles have resulted in each three liquid media, CoO particles were produced only in acetone, whereas Co3O4 particles were predominantly produced in water and ethanol.
