In this study, magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical co-precipitation from the solution containing iron salts in alkaline medium under N2 gas and room temperature. Magnetite nanoparticles were characterized by X- ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), differential thermal analysis (DTA), Brunauer-Emmet-Teller (BET), and vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM). The rheological properties of magnetite ferrofluid were examined by rheology apparatus. The biocompatibility and cytotoxity of magnetite nanoparticles were evaluated by 3T3 and fibroblast cells. The results showed that the Fe3O4 magnetite nanoparticles coated by polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) could be an appropriate candidate for biomedical applications.
