|Title:||The iron oxides strike back: From biomedical applications to energy storage devices and photoelectrochemical water splitting|
|Authors:||Tartaj, P., Morales, M. P., González-Carreño, T., Veintemillas-Verdaguer, S., Serna, C. J.|
|Abstract:||Abundance combined with facile synthesis, easy accessibility to different oxidation states and polymorphs, variety of electronic and magnetic properties, low biotoxicity and natural elimination make of iron oxides a prototype of the ideal functional material. In this research news, we briefly describe some of the fundaments and perspectives of the use of iron oxides in biomedicine, energy storage devices (anodes for lithium ion batteries), photoelectrochemical water splitting and other forms of catalysis. Abundance combined with facile synthesis, low biotoxicity. natural elimination and a broad variety of physical properties (optical, electronic and magnetic) make of iron oxide a material to be considered in energy solutions, healthcare applications and catalyst remediation and transformation Copyright © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
