Multiferroic Bi2NiMnO6 nanoparticles were synthesized by a simple electrospray method. Bi2NiMnO6 nanoparticles crystallize in the monoclinic structure with space group C121. The particles show a uniform spherical shape with a diameter of 100 nm to 300 nm. The ferromagnetic transition of Bi2NiMnO6 is confirmed at 122 K. The room temperature ferroelectricity of the Bi2NiMnO6 nanoparticles is verified by Kelvin probe force microscopy.
