The formation of crystalline materials from solution is usually described by the nucleation and growth theory, where atoms or molecules are assumed to assemble directly from solution. For numerous systems, the formation of the thermodynamically stable crystalline phase is additionally...

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...

No consensus exists on how to address possible toxicity of nanomaterials as they interfere with most in vitro screening tests based on colorimetric and fluorimetric probes such as the dichloro-dihydro-fluorescein diacetate (DCFH-DA) assay for detection of oxidative species. In the...

Magnetotactic bacteria align along the Earth's magnetic field using an organelle called the magnetosome, a biomineralized magnetite (Fe(II)Fe(III)2O4) or greigite (Fe(II)Fe(III)2S4) crystal embedded in a lipid vesicle. Although the need for both iron(II) and iron(III) is clear, little is known...

We present an approach for synchronizing hyperthermia and thermal-responsive local drug release. The targeting probe has a magnetite nanocrystal (Fe₃O₄@PSMA) core and a polynucleotide shell that carries 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (anti-HER2) antibody for cancer...
