Magnetic materials have an enormous impact to the modern science, technology and everyday life. Magnetic nanomaterials represent one of the most important and emerging class of materials in nanotechnology due to a range of potential applications, including magnetic data storage, catalysis, magnetic separation, sensing, waste water treatment and many others. In particularly, magnetic nanoparticles have been envisaged for various biomedical applications. For example, magnetic nanoparticles can be utilised as drug delivery agents, which can be localized in the body at a site of interest using an external magnetic field. When exposed to an alternating magnetic field, magnetic nanoparticles can serve as powerful heat sources destroying tumor cells, which allow to use these nanomaterials in cancer hyperthermia therapy. Magnetic fluids based on aqueous dispersions of small size. Magnetic nanoparticles have also been utilized as contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
This special issue is focused on the synthesis, properties and prospective technological applications of magnetic nanomaterials in chemistry, physics, biology and medicine.
