Abstract

Synthesis of nano sized magnetite particles has been carried out following a polymer matrix mediated process. The synthesis route, being akin to bio mineralization, yields elongated magnetite particles of uniform size and morphology. The produced particles were oriented perpendicularly with respect to polymeric tubules and showed a tendency of array formation as happens in magnetotactic bacteria.
