Magnetic hyperthermia has been rapidly developed as a potential cancer treatment in recent years. Artificially induced hyperthermia close to a tumor can raise the temperature to 45°C causing tumor cell death. Herein, we introduce a novel method for rapid preparation of anti-cancer magnetocaloric PCL/Fe3 O4 mats capable of high-performance hyperthermia using E-jet 3D printing technology. Read More
