This work reports a new approach of synthesis of FePt nanoparticles in aqueous medium using cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) surfactant as a capping agent and the influence of change of its concentration on the size of the particles. Tuning of magnetic properties has also been done by changing the CTAB concentrations. Here at higher CTAB concentration, particles formed are of smaller size compared to the size prepared in lower micellar concentration. The ordering parameter of the particles after annealing at 550 °C with the variation of particle size is also studied. The magnetic properties of these particles are studied and the effect of particle phase and size on magnetic property is also investigated. The particles are prepared in aqueous medium because water soluble particles are useful for hyperthermia therapy. Heating abilities of the particles under AC magnetic field are also checked with change in their size. The studies on interaction of particles with cancer cell line was also performed with probing the cell by fluorescence imaging technique after bio-functionalization of the particles by sodium oleate and fluorescent dye rhodamine-B-isothiocyanate (RITC). All these preliminary studies indicate a promising applicability of the particles for localized cancer treatment by magnetic field induced hyperthermia therapy. © 2018
