Polyoxometalate-stabilized, water dispersible Fe2Pt magnetic nanoparticles

Abstract

Magnetic Fe2Pt core–shell nanoparticles with 2 nm cores were synthesized with a monolayer coating of silicotungstate Keggin clusters. The core–shell composition is substantiated by structural analysis performed using high-resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy (HR-STEM) and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) in a liquid suspension. The molecular metal oxide cluster shell introduces an enhanced dispersibility of the magnetic Fe–Pt core–shell nanoparticles in aqueous media and thereby opens up new routes to nanoparticle bio-functionalization, for example, using pre-functionalized polyoxometalates.
