In this study, pure nano iron was produced by the top to down and bottom up techniques. top to down including production of nano iron by using ball mill machine and bottom up including two methods batch and K-M micro reactor. Different techniques were used for investigation and characterization of the produced nano iron particles such as UV-Vis, PSD, SEM, TEM and XRD. The produced Nano particle using micro mixer showed better characteristics than those produced using batch reactor and ball mill in many aspects such as homogeneity of the produced particles, particle size distribution and size. The results showed that 10 nm core diameter were obtained using Micro mixer as compared to 80 nm and 40 nm core diameter using batch reactor and ball mill respectively.
