Carboxymethylation of dextran for surface modification of magnetite nanoparticles
Magnetite nanoparticles are currently studied for biomedical applications such as MRI, drug delivery, and magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MHF). These applications require nanoparticles with a suitable coating which provides ...
Studies of ferrite based magnetic nanoparticle uptake and magnetocytolysis effects on model cell cultures
Suspended ferrite magnetic nanoparticles are known to dissipate energy under an oscillating magnetic field. Such energy dissipation could be employed to locally raise temperature inside a tumor to 41-45°C (hyperthermia), ...
Stable colloidal dispersions of magnetic nanoparticles in aqueous media and polymer melts
The work presented as part of this thesis describes a process to obtain two types of conventionally used magnetic nanoparticles, magnetite and cobalt ferrite, with a narrow size distribution that can be suspended in aqueous ...
