Theme Issue about Nanoparticles

September 01, 2010

Nguyen T. K. Thanh et al. just got a special issue about nanoparticles published in thePhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A. The theme issue includes articles on the synthesis of cobalt sulphide nanostructures, CoCuPt hollow and Ag@Au core–shell nanoparticles as well as thin films at water–oil interfaces. Colloidal templates for copolymer micelles and porous silica are also covered. More exotic synthetic methods include high-throughput hydrothermal flow synthesis of Zn–Ce oxides. Sensing magnetic nanoparticles with a tunneling magnetoresistance sensor is another aspect of the research covered as well as applications of La1−xSrxMnO3 nanoparticles for magnetic fluid hyperthermia. Many of the articles include detailed characterization of nanoparticles in order to better understand structure– function relationships; a fine example of which includes investigations of magnetic properties of nanoparticles owing to size and surface effect. Finally, useful nanoparticle characterization techniques such as magnetic field-flow fractionation and light scattering are also covered.

Biomedical Nanomagnetics: Kannan Krishnan's Review Now Published

June 19, 2010

Do you remember the excellent tutorial that Kannan Krishnan gave at our 8th Magnetic Carrier Meeting in Rostock? And now the paper that goes with it is available.

Kannan describes in there that biomedical nanomagnetics is a multidisciplinary area of research in science, engineering and medicine with broad applications in
imaging, diagnostics and therapy. Recent developments offer exciting possibilities in personalized medicine provided a truly integrated approach, combining chemistry, materials science, physics, engineering, biology and medicine, is implemented. Emphasizing this perspective, Kannan addresses important issues for the rapid development of the field, i.e., magnetic behavior at the nanoscale with emphasis on the relaxation dynamics, synthesis and surface functionalization of nanoparticles and core-shell structures, biocompatibility and toxicity studies, biological constraints and opportunities, and in vivo and in vitro applications.

Adsorbing nominal amounts of magnetite nanoparticles onto the surface of stiff, anisotropic ceramic particles like alumina enables the fast, parallel control of inorganic architectures with weak, scalable magnetic fields. This ultra-high magnetic response has been exploited to produce complex filler architectures in a new family of advanced composites. For more info, contact Randall Erb. To see the movie, click here.
