Magnetoferritin is a synthetically prepared magnetic bio-complex, consisting of apoferritin shell and iron-based nanoparticles. Superparamagnetic behaviour, nanoscale size (about 12 nm) and biological origin allow to use magnetoferritin in various applications. In this report, we present a general overview about basic physicochemical properties of magnetoferritin, as determined by small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering experiments and some interesting references on their potential bio-applications.
