Abstract

Magnetite nanoparticles (MNPs) show remarkable stability during extreme photothermal heating (≥770 K), displaying no change in size, crystallinity, or surfactants. The heat produced is also shown as chemically useful, driving the high-barrier thermal decomposition of polypropylene carbonate. This suggests MNPs are better photothermal agents (compared to gold nanoparticles), for photothermally driving high-barrier chemical transformations. This journal is
