Alignment of Magnetite-Loaded High Aspect Ratio Aerosol Drug Particles with Magnetic Fields
The present note demonstrates magnetic field alignment of high aspect ratio pharmaceutical aerosol particles loaded with magnetite nanoparticles. This alignment is used to reduce the penetration of the particles through polycarbonate membrane filters when a magnetic field is generated parallel to the face of the membrane. Possible application of magnetic field alignment to noninvasively target respiratory tract deposition during aerosol drug delivery is discussed.
