Magnetic particle-effector conjugates are widely used in vitro for cell sorting in various pathologies. The coupling between the particles and the effectors being realized through S-S bridges, the particles must first be thiolated before the coupling. In this work, the synthesis, in aqueous medium, of nanoparticles of maghemite thiolated by dimercaptosuccinic acid is described. The superficial complexation by a thiol-containing ligand induces a reductive dissolution of the oxide and leads to… CONTINUE READING
