Fe3O4, CoFe2O4 and MnO2 nanoparticles, synthesized by different soft chemistry routes (precipitation in the presence of soft template and solution combustion) were coated by a biocompatible polymer, sodium alginate. The oxides and corresponding composites were structural and morphological characterized. The saturation magnetization for Fe3O4-based composite is 10.1 emu·g-1, resulting magnetic domains of 5.2 nm that suggests a superparamagnetic property. Radical scavenging capability of the composites was investigated by two different methods, Trolox Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity (TEAC) and peroxide-chronoamperometry.
