Co substituted Ni0.3-xCoxCu25Zn0.45Fe2O4 (x = 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15 and 0.2) samples is synthesized using the sol-gel auto-combustion process. X-ray diffraction shows its cubic spinel structure. The lattice constant decreases as the Co content increases. The sizes of the crystallites are in the range of 20.18–26.24 nm. The wavenumbers of tetrahedral and octahedral sites sighted in the FTIR spectra are similar to that of the precursor. The increment on the Co content increases the DC conductivity. The electrical resistivity decrease with increase in the temperature, i.e. it has a negative temperature coefficient with resistance similar to semiconductors. The remnant ratios R obtained from VSM show their isotropic nature forming single domain ferrimagnetic particles. The resultant material is widely significant, as indicated by its result.
