El 4 de marzo tendremos un seminario impartido por María del Puerto Morales, del Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (CSIC)

Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles present suitable features for all these applications. On one hand, there is a well-developed surface chemistry for the coating of these particles with multiple organic molecules. Selecting the appropriate functional group, it is possible to decorate the particles with drugs, biomolecules or enzymes in a conformation that optimizes their activity, or even incorporate the particles to liposomes. On the other hand, when SPIONs are exposed to an alternating magnetic field, they absorb the magnetic energy and dissipate heat in their local environment. Thus, the heat dissipated by the particles can be used to activate the molecules/enzymes attached on their surfaces, maintaining the media at low temperature. For this purpose, it is crucial to control parameters such as core size, coating and composition, and colloidal and magnetic properties of the particles in suspension. This work is funded by the European Union (EU), project HOTZYMES (grant agreement n° 829162).
