     In order to understand the behavior and improve the application of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) in different environments, significant efforts have been made in recent years to develop them. Since the colloidal stability and biological behavior of MNPs are determined by their physical and chemical properties; Therefore, precise control over the synthesis and functional conditions of MNP levels is important. For magnetic systems, biomedical and pharmaceutical targets must have a narrow distribution and very small size, as well as large amounts of magnetism. Finally, their optimal surface coverage is to ensure environmental compatibility and delivery to the main target. Magnetic nanoparticles that have suitable physics and chemistry and desired surface properties were studied for various applications such as drug delivery, hyperthermia and molecular diagnosis. Further studies on the bioconjugation of magnetic nanoparticles, their biocompatibility and toxicity were performed.
