Many researchers have considered the idea of using heat to shrink cancer cells and treat cancer. However, efforts in recent years have led to creating novel material more practical in clinical application. The main reason for the synthesis and producing these materials is to raise the temperature in the right place so that healthy cells around the cancerous tissue are not harmed. Nowadays, this can be partly achievable with new devices and methods. Also, cadmium selenide (CdSe) nanoparticles with zinc selenide (ZnS) coating for special optical properties were investigated in this work. The CdSe nanoparticles have a wide application in biomedical engineering, including detecting cancer tumors and hyperthermia. There are various methods for synthesizing CdSe nanoparticles, such as precipitation, wet chemistry, mechanical activation, and mechanochemical technique. In this study, we have tried to use an economical method to control Cd ions' toxicity. After fabricating the nanoparticles, vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), and hyperthermia analyses (HT), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) technique were performed to characterize the magnetization, thermal changes versus time, phase, and morphology of the synthesized nanoparticles. The obtained results indicated that the CdSe successfully synthesized using chemical segmentation for biomaterials applications.
