Mazo-Zuluaga, J. (Johan) | 2013-11-18
In the last decades, research oriented towards the development of knowledge regarding magnetic properties of materials remains as a relevant field of study in science, technology and engineering due to its implications on nanostructured materials. The present review has the aim to illustrate the importance of iron ferrite (Fe3O4), also called magnetite, in the context of engineering and nanotechnology. Aspects related to the applications of nanostructured materials in modern technology are discussed. Specifically, an extensive literature review about previous scientific work on the biological, technical, and computational aspects associated to magnetite is presented in detail. By portraying a general overview of the potential uses of this material, it is intended to state its wide possibilities and implications in the advance of magnetism and nanotechnology areas.
