We present the synthesis and magnetic properties of Co nanorods spontaneously organized in superlattices over a surface of several microns. This material results from the thermal decomposition of a cobalt precursor under hydrogen, in the presence of a long-chain amine and a long-chain acid as shape control agents. These nanorod superlattices are ferromagnetic at room temperature and they are characterized by a strong coercive field as a consequence of their large magnetic anisotropy. This system can be considered as a good candidate for high density magnetic recording.
