Hot-injection synthesis of iron/iron oxide core/shell nanoparticles for T2 contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here we report a new, bench-top synthesis for iron/iron oxide core/shell nanoparticlesvia the thermal decomposition of Fe(η5-C6H3Me4)2. The iron/iron oxide core/shell nanoparticles are superparamagnetic at room temperature and show improved negative contrast in T2-weighted MR imaging compared to pure iron oxides nanoparticles, and have a transverse relaxivity (r2) of 332 mM−1 s−1.
