Persistence Market Research
Nanoparticles are particles that have at least one dimension in a nano scale. They have properties different from their own macro scale properties. Magnetic nanoparticles are particles whose properties can be manipulated upon exposure to a magnetic field. Magnetic nanoparticles find application in material science, magnetic fluid recording, catalysis, bio-medicines, etc. There are various methods of synthesizing magnetic nanostructures, some of them are: chemical synthesis, thermal decomposition and template assisted fabrication. Template assisted fabrication has an advantage over chemical synthesis. The synthesis method defines the shape, size, magnetic property and surface chemistry of the magnetic nanoparticle. Magnetic nanoparticles can show any one of these magnetic behaviors – diamagnetism, paramagnatism, antiferromagnetism and ferromagnetism. Magnetite is a common example of a magnetic nanoparticle and it is used in many applications, due to its supermagnetic behavior. However, at the same time it is sensitive to oxidation & agglomeration, which can be prevented by various coatings.
Nanoparticles have a metallic core and shell. They have higher magnetization and stability in acidic, basic or organic solvents in comparison to ferrite.
Magnetic Nanoparticle Market: Dynamics
Growth of the magnetic nanoparticle market is expected to gear up, due to the application of these particles in various fields, such as the medical industry for drug delivery, drugs & therapy, in vivo imaging, nano fluids, biomedicine, data storage, and microfluidics.
