What is it about?

Magnetic nanoparticles are particles < 1/10,000th of a millimetre in size made from magnetic materials. There are a large number of possible materials and physical forms that magnetic nanoparticles can be generated from and computational modelling methods are becoming increasingly important in this field to allow rational design and optimization of these agents

Why is it important?

They are very useful for diagnosing and treating a range of important medical conditions, notably, cancer.


This review discusses the different types and applications of magnetic nanoparticles from the perspective of computational models. These models allow us to predict the behaviour of these very useful materials and to design more effective versions.
