Techniques for the fabrication of nanostructured materials are outlined. This review covers the synthesis of nanostructured metals (Fe, Co, Ni) and metal alloys (Fe-Co, Pt-Pd, M50 steel) from corresponding organometallic precursors by various methods such as thermal decomposition, ultrasonic irradiation, chemical vapor deposition, laser pyrolysis, and reduction.
