Magnetic nanoparticles have attracted tremendous attention in drug delivery and other biomedical applications since the last two decades. Many magnetic nanoparticle based formulations are already available in the market and even many more are under different stages of development. The incredible progress in this area is due to well-established synthesis procedures of size and shape-controlled magnetic nanoparticles as well as their well-recognized surface functionalization approaches. Advanced drug delivery systems consider the shape, colloidal stability, density of surface anchoring groups on nanoparticle surface as well as responsive and sustained release of drug molecules along with integrated imaging modality.

Keywords: Magnetic nanoparticles, Responsive release, Responsive release, Release kinetics, Surface functionalization, Surface coating.
