The photothermal effect of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles is investigated for cancer therapy both in vitro and in vivo experiments. Heat is found to be rapidly generated by red and near-infrared (NIR) range laser irradiation of Fe3O4 nanoparticles with spherical, hexagonal and wire-like shapes. These Fe3O4 nanoparticles are coated with carboxyl-terminated poly (ethylene glycol)-phospholipid for enhanced dispersion in water. The surface-functionalized Fe3O4 nanoparticles can be taken up by… CONTINUE READING
