Acicular nanoparticles formed through coprecipitation of iron salts in the presence of bovine serum albumin
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Coprecipitation of ferric and ferrous iron salts in the presence of Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) demonstrates an unusual impact on crystal growth mechanisms and eventual nanoparticle morphology. For BSA 200-800 mu Mol/ml, polycrystalline acicular and haloed spheroid particles were observed and these samples demonstrated surprising magnetic properties, including high coercivity.
