    Abstract

    Diatom frustules coated with magnetite nanoparticles 21 nm in size were synthesised without the requirement of stabilisers, or prior functionalisation of the frustule surface, with the resulting material exhibiting superparamagnetic behaviour, and with a high capacity for phosphate ion adsorption.
