Magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) exhibit various interesting properties and are discussed for a rather broad variety of applications ranging from biomedical cancer treatment to catalyst support. Control over size and surface properties plays a key role for these fields, and here, we demonstrate a facile way to immobilize a broad variety of polymers at the surface of thiol-modified MNP, providing a handle to tune solubility and surface functionality. The cover image shows TEM micrographs of MNP at three different stages: after preparation using coprecipitation, after surface modification with thiol groups, and after immobilization of a polymeric shell.
