Magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) utilizing the heat generated by the magnetic particles exposed to external AC magnetic field has an edge over the other hyperthermia techniques, since the heat source can be localized in cancer cells with an external magnetic field and their position can be detected by utilizing their magnetic properties. Heating rate depends on the particle diameters and the experimental investigations by using magnetite particles suggested that the optimal size could be above 11nm. Thus, in this paper, a technique to synthesize monodispersed magnetite particles with diameters raging between 11 and 20 nm is reported. Furthermore, a detailed analysis of the relationship between particle size and heating rate is reported based on the magnetic and heat dissipation properties of magnetite particles synthesized by the modified oxidation method.
