Abstract

   The research paper describes the synthesis, characterization of Fe3O4@SiO2, BiFeO3@SiO2, ZnFe2O4@SiO2, BiFe0.9Zn0.1O3@SiO2 and BiFe0.75Co0.25O3@SiO2 nanoparticles. The materials were synthesized by chemical co-precipitation technique and are characterized by X-ray diffraction, Transmission electron microscope with EDS and Vibrating sample magnetometer. Further, the biocompatibility studies were performed on THP-1 cells. The results indicated that the developed nanoparticles have considered being good biocompatible materials.
