Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4@mesoporousSiO2 (NZF@mSiO2) core shell nanocarrier was synthesized by sol-gel method using TEOS and CTAB and characterized for different physicochemical and biocompatible properties using XRD, HRTEM, FESEM, BET, VSM techniques and MTT assay. XRD pattern and TEM micrographs confirmed the coexistence of Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 and SiO2 phases in the nanocomposites. Average crystallite size of Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 NPs was found to be around ~21 nm. Particles sizes of NZF@mSiO2 measured by TEM and FESEM were found to be ~200-400 nm. HRTEM results confirmed successful formation of NZF@mSiO2 core shell nanocomposites having well symmetric structure and ellipsoidal shape. Both BET and HRTEM analysis confirmed the presence of pores (5-10 nm) on the surface of SiO2 nanosphere. NZF and NZF@mSiO2 have been found super-paramagnetic in nature. The Ms values for Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 and NZF@mSiO2 were found to be 55 and 10 emu/gm respectively. MTT assay confirmed the biocompatible nature of NZF and NZF@mSiO2 nanoparticles.
