C. Tudisco, F. Bertani, M.T. Cambria, F. Sinatra, E. Fantechi, C. Innocenti, C. Sangregorio, E. Dalcanale and G. G. Condorelli Abstract In this contribution, Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) have been functionalized with a tetraphosphonate cavitand receptor (Tiiii), capable of complexing N-monomethylated species with high selectivity, and polyethylene glycol (PEG) via click-chemistry. The grafting process is […]
