Abstract

The present chapter describes the synthesis and characterization of a few unique magnetic nano- and micron-sized particles: (1) maghemite nanoparticles of ca. 15- to 100-nm diameter with narrow size distribution; (2) air-stable iron nanocrystalline particles; (3) solid and hollow maghemite/polystyrene and silica/maghemite/polystyrene micron-sized composite particles with narrow size distribution; (4) magnetic/nonmagnetic polystyrene/poly(methyl methacrylate) hemispherical composite micron-sized particles with narrow size distribution. Preliminary studies demonstrated a few potential biomedical uses of some of these magnetic particles. In the future we plan to focus our main efforts to the applications of these magnetic particles. Special efforts will be provided to the synthesis, surface modification, and biomedical uses of nano- and micron-sized Fe particles of narrow size distribution.
