Iron Oxide Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications: Synthesis, Functionalization and Application begins with several chapters covering the synthesis, stabilization, physico-chemical characterization and functionalization of iron oxide nanoparticles.

The second part of the book outlines the various biomedical imaging applications that currently take advantage of the magnetic properties of iron oxide nanoparticles. Brief attention is given to potential iron oxide based therapies, while the final chapter covers nanocytotoxicity, which is a key concern wherever exposure to nanomaterials might occur.

This comprehensive book is an essential reference for all those academics and professionals who require thorough knowledge of recent and future developments in the role of iron oxide nanoparticles in biomedicine.

  • Unlocks the potential of iron oxide nanoparticles to transform diagnostic imaging techniques
  • Contains full coverage of new developments and recent research, making this essential reading for researchers and engineers alike
  • Explains the synthesis, processing and characterization of iron oxide nanoparticles with a view to their use in biomedicine
