The use of superparamagnetic nanocrystals (MNPs) for biomedical applications generally requires a synthetic route in which the resultant MNPs are water soluble and biocompatible with good morphology and size distribution control, as well as optimized hydrodynamic size. To achieve this, hydrophobic MNPs are typically synthesized through the thermolysis process and thereafter water solubilized by using amphiphilic brush co-polymers. In this paper, two types of MNPs were synthesized, i.e… CONTINUE READING
