- We report a simple and green procedure for the preparation of magnetic iron oxide nanocrystals via solvothermal synthesis. The nanocrystal synthesis was carried out under mild conditions in the water–ethanol–oleic acid solvent system with the use of the oleate anion as a surface modifier of nanocrystals and glucose as a reducing agent. Specific conditions for homogenous precipitation achieved in such a reaction system lead to the formation of uniform high-quality nanocrystals down to 5 nm in diameter. The obtained hydrophobic nanocrystals can easily be converted to hydrophilic magnetic nanoparticles by being immobilized in a poly(L-lactide)–polyethyleneimine polymeric matrix. These hybrid nano-constructs may find various biomedical applications, such as magnetic separation, gene transfection and/or magnetic resonance imaging.
