1. A method of producing CoFe nanoparticles that comprises: (a) providing a first aqueous hydroxide solution; (b) preparing a second aqueous solution containing iron ions and cobalt ions; and (c) depositing measured volumes of the second aqueous solution into the first aqueous solution whereby coprecipitation yields CoFe alloy nanoparticles which have diameters from 5 nm to 40 nm and which have a magnetic saturation (Ms) of from 210 to 235 emu/g, wherein step (c) occurs in an environment that is essentially free of oxygen.
