Abstract: The water-based magnetite Fe3O4, maghemite γ-Fe2O3, Gd-substituted ferrites Fe[GdxFe2−x]O4, Ni-Cu alloy particles suspensions and dextran-ferrite (DF) solutions were prepared for the magnetically controlled thermochemotherapy (MCT). The temperature elevation prepared nanoparticles in AC magnetic field (0.88 MHz, 7.3 kA/m, 0.15 kW) and their toxicity were characterised. The results are in a good agreement with physical and chemical properties observed by in vitro measurements. The moment and Curie temperature of magnetic nanoparticles are obtained. The corresponding models of magnetic structure for magnetite, maghemite and Gd-doped ferrites are discussed.
