The sum of its parts: Nanocomposites of Fe10BO3/Fe3O4/SiO2 and GdFeO3/Fe3O4/SiO2, synthesized by a gel combustion technique using citric acid as fuel and chelation, exhibited strong magnetic properties indicating that they might have potential applications in diagnostic analysis of cancer through use in neutron capture therapy.
