Clustering superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) is one method of providing the biomedical benefits of larger SPIONs [e.g. superior T2 weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast] without increasing particle size. The work presented herein, describes the facile synthesis of clustered SPIONs that are suitable for MRI applications, by using a chitosan based polymer: N-palmitoyl- ...
