Classification of Magnetic Nanoparticle Systems--Synthesis, Standardization and Analysis Methods in the NanoMag Project

Int J Mol Sci. 2015 Aug 27;16(9):20308-25. doi: 10.3390/ijms160920308.


This study presents classification of different magnetic single- and multi-core particle systems using their measured dynamic magnetic properties together with their nanocrystal and particle sizes. The dynamic magnetic properties are measured with AC (dynamical) susceptometry and magnetorelaxometry and the size parameters are determined from electron microscopy and dynamic light scattering. Using these methods, we also show that the nanocrystal size and particle morphology determines the dynamic magnetic properties for both single- and multi-core particles. The presented results are obtained from the four year EU NMP FP7 project, NanoMag, which is focused on standardization of analysis methods for magnetic nanoparticles.

Keywords: magnetic analysis; magnetic material; magnetic nanoparticles; magnetic synthesis; nanostructures; standardization.
