In this work using sol-gel auto-combustion synthesis was synthesised single-phase magnesium-substituted lithium ferrite at different pH reaction medium. The synthesized materials were investigated by X-ray and Mossbauer methods. It was shown that the pH of the reaction medium plays a crucial role in the formation of the microstructure and properties of synthesized systems.
