Two sets of iron oxide samples were synthesized applying different iron(III) precursors (FeCl3 and Fe2(SO4)3) and calcination temperature (200, 300, and 500°C). The samples were characterized by powder X-ray analysis and the Fourier transform: infrared spectroscopy. Depending on the synthesis conditions, samples of iron oxides with different phase composition were obtained: polyphase (α -Fe2O3, γ -Fe2O3, Fe3O4, and α -FeO(OH)) and monophase (γ -Fe2O3 or α -Fe2O3) ones. For the samples of homogeneous composition, it has been found that the activity of γ -Fe2O3 in the reaction of ozone decomposition at ozone concentration in gaseous phase of 1 mg/m3 is much higher than the activity of α -Fe2O3.
