Understanding intracellular nanoparticle trafficking fates through spatiotemporally resolved magnetic nanoparticle recovery

We describe how magnetic nanoparticles can be used to study intracellular nanoparticle trafficking, and how magnetic extraction may be integrated with downstream analyses to investigate nanoscale decision-making events.

Identifying the presence of magnetite in an ensemble of iron-oxide nanoparticles: a comparative neutron diffraction study between bulk and nanoscale

We exploit the Verwey transition to detect the presence of magnetite in an ensemble of IONPs by using the thermal evolution value of the magnetic moment obtained by neutron diffraction in a mixture of maghemite and magnetite phases in their cores.
