Magnetic carbon nanostructures in medicine

Author affiliations


Magnetic carbon nanostructures are hybrid materials containing magnetic and carbon (mainly sp2) nanoallotrope components conjugated in various configurations. Their potential applications in medicine including drug delivery systems, magnetic particle/fluid hyperthermia anti-cancer therapy and magnetic resonance imaging are reviewed.
