Special Issue Information

Dear, Colleagues,

The special issue "Conference on Nanomaterials 2011" will contain original articles on contributions to the Zing Nanomaterials Conference 2011 in Cancun, Mexico (http://www.zingconferences.com/index.cfm?page=conference&intConferenceID=62&type=conference). Nanomaterials related topics will span from synthesis and characteristion of nanomaterials to their application and modelling. The conference will actively foster the dialogue between experimentalists and theoreticians. Contributions may include, but are not limited to, issues as diverse as nanocrystal nucleation and growth, synthesis methods, surfaces and surface ligands, physical properties of nanomaterials (optical, magnetic, electrical, etc.), catalytic nanomaterials, graphene, applications in the areas of bioimaging, drug delivery, energy conversion and others, as well as the modelling of all of these aspects.

Magnetic nanocrystals have been investigated extensively in the past several years for several potential applications, such as information technology, MRI contrast agents, and for drug conjugation and delivery. A specific property of interest in biomedicine is magnetic hyperthermia—an increase in temperature resulting from the thermal energy released by magnetic nanocrystals in an external alternating magnetic field. Iron oxide nanocrystals of various sizes and morphologies were synthesized and tested for specific losses (heating power) using frequencies of 111.1 kHz and 629.2 kHz, and corresponding magnetic field strengths of 9 and 25 mT. Polymorphous nanocrystals as well as spherical nanocrystals and nanowires in paramagnetic to ferromagnetic size range exhibited good heating power. A remarkable 30 °C temperature increase was observed in a nanowire sample at 111 kHz and magnetic field of 25 mT (19.6 kA/m), which is very close to the typical values of 100 kHz and 20 mT used in medical treatments.
