Abstract
Nanoparticles are widely used because of their unique tunable properties and application in various fields of science and technology. Among other nanoparticles the Iron oxide nanoparticles are extensively being employed in various biomedical applications including MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), magnetic separation, magnetically induced hyperthermia, and drug delivery. The important properties of magnetic iron oxide particles for medical applications are non-toxicity, biocompatibility, injectability, and high-level accumulation in the target tissue or organ; Iron oxide is also widely used because of its magnetic nature and that allows the movement of the drug delivery system to desired target site with an external magnetic field. Drug delivery through magnetic carrying systems are of particular interest in cancer therapy where the side-effects are severe and the amount of drug that must be ingested is increased due to the minute amount that reaches the tumor with each dosage. The main challenge in this research field is to improve the magnetic nanoparticles drug carrying capacity. Various methods of synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles and their drug loading & release profiles are discussed. This presentation also covers the other biomedical applications of other nanoparticles such as CaCO3 nanoparticles obtained from renewable resources such as eggshell and ZnO, TiO2, Ag, CNTs, and their hybrid nanoparticles.
