Table 1 Unit cell parameters (a, c), crystal cell volume (V), as well as refined factor (Rw) for the nanocomposite α-Fe2O3/γ-Fe2O3

From: Iron oxides nanoparticles (IOs) exposed to magnetic field promote expression of osteogenic markers in osteoblasts through integrin alpha-3 (INTa-3) activation, inhibits osteoclasts activity and exerts anti-inflammatory action
