Abstract

Biologically active 1,2-bis(10,12-tricosadiynoyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DC8,9PC) nanotube-forming phospholipids (PL) were utilized to synthesize highly ferromagnetic, concentric iron oxide-carbon-iron oxide nanotubes (FMNTs), using Fe2+/H2O2 redox reactions, followed by further exposure to 550 degrees C.
