About this Research Topic
Magnetic nanomaterials have wide range of applications in data storage, biomedical, energy, environmental and clinical areas. Enormous amount of effort has been put on the synthesis and surface modification of various magnetic nanomaterials to make them suitable for the selected applications. Depending on the magnetic nature, i.e. dia, ferro, ferri, antiferro and superparamagnetic, the range of applications can drastically vary (hyperthermia, magnetic data storage, drug delivery and multiferroic). The physiochemical properties of the magnetic nanomaterials could be altered by using different techniques such doping, surface modification, developing multifunctional magnetic composites.
The main objective of the research topic is to address the advancement made in the development of the various magnetic nanomaterials, their surface modification to achieve the required physiochemical characteristics and their applications in energy generation, harvesting and storage. Here we would like to address the advancement in synthesis, modification of physiochemical properties of magnetic nanomaterials and their specific application in energy such as solar cells, piezoelectric, fuel cell, thermoelectric, batteries, supercapacitors. The effect of magnetic field during synthesis and on applications would be additional.
