giant-hyperthermal-fe3o4-mgGiant hyperthermal effect could be achieved using the recently developed magnesium-doped gamma-Fe3O4 nanoparticles. The effect is 100x higher than that for the state-of-the-art magnetic nanoparticles, and is achieved solely due to the fine-tuned dopant concentration and synthesis conditions. Important to note that the size of particles is ca. 7 nm (other studies claimed that giant hyperthermal effect can only be achieved for particles with diameter >30-60 nm, which would strongly limit their applicability in a living organism).

Consortium of scientists from University of South Carolina and Seoul National University College of Medicine  have published the article showing the results of their development including in vivo proof in Advanced Materials DOI: 10.1002/adma.201704362
