Silica-coated superparamagnetic nanoparticles as contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging: Synthesis and physicological charaterizations [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) have received a growing interest for various biomedical applications due to their interesting magnetic properties. Herein, we report a method for facile synthesis of colloidal silica-coated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (Si-SPIONs). The polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-SPIONs were successfully prepared and then coated with silica by the modified Stöber method. The obtained Si-SPIONs are highly monodisperse with uniform morphology. Notably, comparing to uncoated SPIONs, silica coated ones show colloidal stability region at physiological pH which is applicable in biomedical applications and synthesis at the scale of grams was easily obtained by a simple scale up process. Moreover, aggregation was not detected upon storage of over three months. MRI of the particles was performed. In vitro study in aspect of cytotoxicity and stability of the particle was investigated. Our work to develop the characteristics of non-toxic and stable Si-SPIONs will be beneficial for the development of safer and more efficient targeting MRI contrast agent for various cancer diagnosis. © 2015 IEEE.
