Abundance combined with facile synthesis, easy accessibility to different oxidation states and polymorphs, variety of electronic and magnetic properties, low biotoxicity and natural elimination make of iron oxides a prototype of the ideal functional material. In this research news, we briefly describe some of the fundaments and perspectives of the use of iron oxides in biomedicine and other forms of catalysis.
General aspects regarding the new research topic on biomaterials in the group are also described.
