Magnetically-responsive nanophotonics with iron-doped silver nanoparticles

Nanostructures play an important role in photonics, thanks to the wide range of active and passive optical effects they can generate. For instance, silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) are renowned for their plasmonic properties exploitable for quenching or

Cobalt ferrite nanoparticles as nanoheaters to treat cancer

Enhancing the tumours temperature to 41-46 °C represents an oncological therapy known as moderate hyperthermia. To selectively heat up cancer cells, avoiding any damage of the healthy tissues, magnetic nanoparticles (with sizes in the range 10-9-10-7 m)

Application of pH-sensitive magnetic microgel in environmental samples

Phenoxy acid herbicides are phytotoxic compounds employed to kill annual and perennial broad leaved weeds in gardens and crops. Phenoxy acid herbicides such as 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4 – D), 4 – (2,4 – dichlorophenoxy) butanoic acid (2,4-DB),
