Amorphous Fe1-xBx alloy particles have been prepared in aqueous solutions by reduction of Fe2+ ions to the metallic state by the use of NaBH4. It is demonstrated, that by changing the pH of the aqueous metal ion solution the amount of boron incorporated in the alloy particles can be varied between 15 and 28 at.%. Fe-57 Mossbauer spectra have been obtained at 10, 80 and 295 K. The hyperfine parameters for amorphous particles have been found to be similar to those found for ribbons and films prepared by the liquid-quench and sputtering techniques, respectively, though with a tendency for the magnetic hyperfine fields for the chemically prepared and sputter prepared alloys to deviate slightly from those for melt-spun samples. The magnetic hyperfine fields decrease linearly as a function of T3/2.
