Iron oxide nanoparticles (IONs) are being actively researched and experimented with as contrast agents for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), as well as image-directed delivery of therapeutics. The efficiency of an MRI contrast agent can be described... Read More

Doping of inorganic materials in microreactors – preparation of Zn doped Fe₃O₄ nanoparticles (2015)
Journal Article
Simmons, M. D., Jones, N., Evans, D. J., Wiles, C., Watts, P., Salamon, S., …Francesconi, M. G. (2015). Doping of inorganic materials in microreactors – preparation of Zn doped Fe₃O₄ nanoparticles. Lab on a chip, 15(15), (3154-3162). doi:10.1039/c5lc00287g. ISSN 1473-0197

Microreactor systems are now used more and more for the continuous production of metal nanoparticles and metal oxide nanoparticles owing to the controllability of the particle size, an important property in many applications. Here, for the first time... Read More
