This paper reports the nanostructural and magnetic behaviors of nano-sized magnetite/polyvinyl alcohol prepared by electrospinning route. The composition of the magnetite nanoparticles and polyvinyl alcohol were prepared from natural iron sand. The samples were maintained for pure magnetite without fibers, 0.075 g and 0.175 g for the mass compositions of magnetite in the fibers. The experimental data presented that the mass variation of the magnetite decreased the diameter of the fibers. Moreover, the higher composition of the magnetite has led to an increase in the saturation magnetization of the fibers. Such results were confirmed by the increasing content of the Fe atoms originating from magnetite particles. Morphologically, the magnetite/polyvinyl alcohol fibers were formed in continuous fibers with the diameter of 300 nm for optimum voltage of 20 kV.
