Viability of Magnetic Nanoparticles for Magnetic Hyperthermia Cancer Therapy

Marcos Adrian Garcia, University of Texas at El Paso


Over the last few decades magnetic nanoparticles have gained an extraordinary amount of attention in the science community. Their versatile use in many different research areas such as medicine, engineering and technology and many other areas has made them a popular subject. In this thesis, the synthesis of different systems of magnetic nanoparticles will be explored along with the potential use of the MNP's as viable candidates for Magnetic Hyperthermia Cancer Therapy. With values of over 200 emu/g for Iron-Silver magnetic nanoparticles with particle sizes ranging from 30-70nm and their heating properties under an AC magnetic field. As well of a system of Iron-Cobalt with magnetic saturation of 126 emu/g with small particle sizes and it's potential use for Magnetic Hyperthermia due to its heating properties under the AC magnetic field.
