Abstract

Polyethylene magnetic nanoparticles were synthesized by nonsolvent and temperature induced crystallization along with ultrasonication. Low molecular weight polyethylene wax and maghemite were used for forming the composite particles. These particles were further coated with avidin. The nanoparticles are characterized using STEM, AFM and SQUID. Nanomagnetic particles were found to have two distinct morphologies and have superparamagnetic properties.
