i. I will describe the synthesis of iron oxide nanoparticles IONPs (diameters around 60 nm) with excellent colloidal stability in both water and serum, imparted by carefully designed grafted polymer shells.
ii. The aim was to deisign nanoparticles that act as resposive MRI contrast agents and allow signalling on drug release.
iii. The IONPs were.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
