Abstract [en]

The effect of the surface coating on the magnetic properties of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) with 8 nm in size has been studied. Four different biocompatible coating layers are considered: poly L,L-lactic acid (PLLA), poly e-caprolactone (PCL), bovine serum albumin (BSA) and gold. The presence of coating layer on the surface of SPION is confirmed by FT-IR spectroscopy. Mössbauer spectroscopy and magnetic susceptibility measurements show that for uncoated SPION and Au@SPION the superparamagnetic fraction is retained. The formation of clusters in the case of BSA@SPION and chain-like structure for PCL@SPION and PLLA@SPION increase the inter-particle interactions resulting in hyperfine magnetic structure observed in the Mössbauer spectra at ambient temperature.
