Functionalized Magnetic Nanoparticles and their Application in Chemistry and Biomedicine

Functionalized Magnetic Nanoparticles and their Application in Chemistry and Biomedicine

Objective

Functionalized magnetic nanoparticles are proposed as smart platforms for applications in chemistry - emphasizing catalysis -, environmental chemistry - emphasizing catalytic detoxification, or biomedicine - emphasizing delivery of biomolecules and drugs. The magnetic properties of the entities offer an additional dimension for their manipulation by external magnetic fields, e.g. for flow reactors, for recovery from the environment, for imaging (MRI) or for directed targeting of tumors in living beings. The consortium spans the synthesis of coated (graphene, silica, polymers) magnetic nanoparticles with metal and metal oxides cores, covalent and non-covalent functionalization with chemical and biomedical agents, applications in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemical production or detoxification of the environment, or biomedical applications such as tumor recognition, drug delivery or gene transfection. Disciplines involved are Chemistry, Biochemistry and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Material Science, Physics, and Medicine.
