Low‐Coordinate Single‐Ion Magnets by Intercalation of Lanthanides into a Phenol Matrix

SIM city: Low-coordinate single-ion magnets were achieved by intercalation of dysprosium and erbium into a bulky phenol matrix. Both the oblate-type dysprosium and prolate-type erbium analogues exhibited single-ion magnet (SIM) behavior. Furthermore, the dysprosium SIM exhibited blocking barrier up to 961 K.

A Highly Efficient Self‐Biased Nickel‐Zinc Ferrite/Metglas/PZT Magnetoelectric Gyrator

A highly efficient self-biased magnetoelectric gyrator configured by three-phase nickel-zinc ferrite/Metglas/PZT has been studied based on a low demagnetization effect and as a function of the number of Metglas layers. A large power conversion efficiency of 72% and a current–voltage conversion ratio of 3356 VA−1 were obtained at the high length-to-width ratio of 18.7, when bonded with two layers of Metglas.

Controlling the Sulfidation Process of Iron Nanoparticles: Accessing Iron−Iron Sulfide Core‐Shell Structures

Core-shell nanoparticles: Surface sulfidation of zerovalent iron nanoparticles with hydrogen sulfide at ambident temperature yields structurally well-defined core-shell systems exhibiting an iron core and an iron sulfide shell. According to Mößbauer studies the shell's chemical composition is best described as a mixture of Fe1−XS, Fe2S2, and Fe7S8. Magnetic measurements reveal the partially preserved ferromagnetic character of the core-shell particles, which is also reflected in substantial magnetic heating properties of the material.

Macromolecular Crowding May Significantly Affect the Performance of an MRI Contrast Agent: A 1H NMR Spectroscopy, Microimaging, and Fast‐Field‐Cycling NMR Relaxometry Study

The big picture: The macromolecules in an aqueous solution of a paramagnetic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent generally bring additional proton spin relaxation to the water molecules close to the paramagnetic ion leading to contrast change in the MRI images. This suggests the importance of taking into account the effect of macromolecular crowding on the performance of MRI contrast agents and image analysis and diagnosis in clinical and functional MRI.

Genetically controlled cellular uptake and lysosomal confinement of superparamagnetic ferritins (magnetoferritins) enable interrogation of cellular processes with deep tissue penetration via optoacoustic imaging, third harmonic generation microscopy, photoablation, as well as magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic cell sorting and manipulation. A substantial increase of the blocking temperature of lysosomal magnetoferritins furthermore allows for ablation of genetically defined cells by local magnetic hyperthermia.

The size, shape, and order of ZnO nanorods can be tuned by changing the influence of these forces. This tuning of the nanoarray translates into optimization of their microorganism sensing properties as solid-state, functionalization-free biosensors to prevent contaminations.

The complex showed fairly high relaxivity (20 mm−1 s−1) and a strong interaction with human serum albumin in three binding sites. This property translates into a long blood elimination half-life, and in macromolecule-like behavior, this product was found to be an optimal blood-pool agent.
