Magnetite nanoparticles (NPs) in their oxidized form maghemite are largely used in biomedical applications such as theranostics. One of their limitations in magnetic hyperthermia (MHT) is the low heating yield/mg[1]. We propose to overcome this by combining MHT with photothermia (PT) by using the optical properties of magnetite instead of building nanohybrids[2, 3]. Magnetite is a conducting mixed valence iron oxide has an inverse spinel structure with both Fe (II) and Fe (III) in octahedral sites of the crystal[4]. This distribution of mixed oxidation states at the surface was found to produce and intervalence d-d charge transfer that gives rise to absorption in the second near infrared region (1000-1350 nm)[5]. However, aerobic oxidation of Fe (II) ions in Fe (III) at the surface of magnetite, induces disappearance in the charge transfer band, and loss of photothermal applications[5]. The PT properties could be maintained by stabilization of the plasmonic NIR intervalence charge transfer band of magnetite. Bioinspired by nature, redox non-innocent ligand (NILs) are molecular scaffolds bearing extended conjugation and have been shown to delocalize spin density when complex to a metal[6]. Herein we propose to use these redox ligands as a multiplatform for surface engineering of magnetite nanoparticles in order to prevent their surface oxidation, to investigate possible ligand-induced surface effect, as anchors for targeting and theranostics, and to bring new magnetic properties modulated by the ligands.
