The influence of bilayer number deposited on magnetic microspheres, catalyst concentration, inorganic oxidants, and salts on the degradation of the methyl orange solution was studied in detail.
Figure 4 shows the X-ray diffraction pattern of Fe[(OH).sub.3]@PMMA (a) and magnetic microspheres (b).
Preparation of the Organic Encapsulated [Fe.sub.3][O.sub.4] Magnetic Microspheres
The acridinium conjugates were compared in magnetic chemiluminescence immunoassay format using magnetic microspheres coated with the same antibody used on the latex microspheres.
In this experiment, size of [Fe.sub.3][O.sub.4] magnetic microspheres ranges from 400 to 500 nm, and each microsphere consists of many small [Fe.sub.3][O.sub.4] crystals.

TC in serum or plasma is "captured" and concentrated by a high-affinity monoclonal antibody (mAb) immobilized on magnetic microspheres; the Cbl bound to TC is then released and measured by a conventional assay protocol for Cbl in serum or plasma.
The system uses a fiber-optic magnetic focusing probe that attracts the magnetic microspheres to the surface of a sample chamber directly in front of the excitation and emission fibers.
Magnetic microspheres coated with silica layer (Fe3O4@SiO2) were synthesized using previously reported methods [24 25].
Meanwhile, magnetic microspheres were introduced into the area of biosciences in the 1970s [20]; the synthesis of micro-(or nano) magnetic carriers has received increasing interest due to their wide promising applications.
The synthesis methods followed for the preparation of Fe3O4@SiO2 magnetic microspheres was previously described by Wu et al.
