Paper Abstract

Magnetic nanoparticles are considered for biomedical applications, such as the medium in magnetic resonance imaging, hyperthermia, drug delivery, and for the purification or classification of DNA or virus. The performance of magnetic nanoparticles in biomedical application such as hyperthermia depends very much on the magnetic properties, size and size distribution. We briefly described the basic idea behind their use in drug delivery, magnetic separation and hyperthermia and discussed the prerequisite properties magnetic particles for biomedical applications. Finally reported the synthesis and classification scheme to prepare magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles with narrow size distribution for magnetic fluid hyperthermia.
