We are in the process of closing BMC Materials. You might wish to submit to BMC Biomedical Engineering or to Discover Materials, a fully open access journal committed to providing all authors a streamlined submission process, rapid review and publication, and a high level of author service at every stage.
This review elaborates the structural and magnetic properties of Multifunctional magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (MIONPs), specifically magnetite, maghemite and hematite, followed by the important synthetic methods that can be applied for biomedical approaches.
Editor Harriet Manning and Chair of the Editorial Advisory Board for BMC Materials Professor Rodrigo Martins discuss the latest addition to the BMC Series portfolio in this BMC blog.
Data support service
Authors submitting to this journal can opt to use a new service that will make it easier to share research data.
Benefit from our free funding service
We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding.
