Synthesis and Characterization of Environment Friendly and Multifunctional Fe3O4 Magnetic Nanoparticles
Abstract:In this study, the size-uniform (5-6 nm), nearly spherical, and well-dispersed aqueous Fe3O4magnetic nanoparticles were prepared by an improved chemical coprecipitation method. The DDAT-terminated (S-1-Dodecyl-S′-(α,α′-dimethyl-α″-acetic acid) trithiocarbonate) polymethacrylic (PMA-DDAT) was chosen as the apt surfactant, and the terminal DDAT can be used as a high efficient RAFT chain-transfer agent for further functionalization. Then, the functionalized Fe3O4 reacted with 4-amino-2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-piperidine-oxyl (4-NH2-TEMPO) to give the spin labeling magnetic nanoparticles. Finally, the multifunctional MNPs was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR), and vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM). The obtained highly water-soluble, superparamagnetic, and multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles should find potential applications in biomedical research.
