We systematically investigated the effective surface anisotropy of CoFe2O4 nanoparticles dependant on the thickness of SiO2 shell. XRD (X-ray powder diffraction) patterns and TEM (transmission electron microscopy) micrographs were used to investigate the structure of particles and thickness of SiO2 shell, respectively. The thicknesses of SiO2 shell with 5.41 nm on CoFe2O4 nanoparticles were increased up to 14.04 +/- 0.05 nm by changing the amount of added TEOS by, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 1.50, and 2.50 mL. The increase of the SiO2 thickness shell decreased the effective anisotropy due to decline the effectiveness of the dipolar magnetostatic interactions, determined from Vogel-Fulcher equation, between the particles. The declines in the Keff values stabled at around 3.76 +/- 0.11 x 10(5) J/m(3) for TEOS amount higher than 1.5 mL.
