Encapsulation of Fe phases inside multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) allows isolating reactive magnetic phases exerting magnetic fluid hyperthermia responses. In particular, bioconjugation of Fe@MWCNTs with monoclonal antibody Cetuximab enables the selective in vitro cancer cell sorting and stimuli-induced cytotoxicity under application of external magnetic inputs. Molecular dynamics calculations shed further light on binding modes and conformational properties of the Ab moieties linked on to the tubular carbon framework.
