J. Zach Hilt, PhD, Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Kentucky

Magnetic nanocomposites are a relatively new class of advanced materials, which have attracted interest as intelligent materials for biomaterial and other applications. In Hilt’s lab, he is primarily interested in magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) due to their ability to respond to an alternating magnetic field (AMF) resulting in local energy delivery and potentially localized heating. We have incorporated MNPs into nanocomposites that exhibit new and unique properties such as remote actuation and the resultant properties of the nanocomposite can be easily tailored by manipulating the composition of the polymer and the nanoparticulate material.
