Graphite-coated nanomagnets are successfully manipulated in a simulated body fluid environment using a 5-DOF electromagnetic system. The nanomagnets are fabricated in batch by template-assisted deposition. Iron nanowires are electrodeposited in an alumina template and subsequently coated with high quality graphitic shells using chemical vapor deposition. This approach enables having both arrays of graphite-coated ferromagnetic nanowires as well as potential drug-delivery nanovectors.
