Rajapalayam, India, January 28, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Dr.T.Theivasanthi, a research faculty of International Research Centre, Kalasalingam University has invented the world’s first super-paramagnetic particles of plant materials (size: 15nm) named, “Santhi Particles.” It is a remarkable benchmark in the nanotechnology research field. It has been honored with world record in LIMCA Book of Records-2015 of The Coca-Cola Company.
“I am very happy for these achievements. Making my inventions as world record entry in LIMCA Book is my pride,” she commented. These nano-particles have been made using plants materials only. Biocomaptible, low-cost, making mass production within short period are the salient features of these nano-particles. These features will attract future research in nanotechnology / bio-physics / bio-technology and will lead to next level. The invented new nano-materials will be useful in cancer diagnostics and treatment, she said further. Such particles from coconut shell (Santhi Particles-1. size 18 nm) and turmeric (Santhi Particles-2. size 20 nm) have also been prepared by her.

Smallest super-paramagnetic particles of plant materials
T Theivasanthi (b May 25, 1978), Assistant Professor (Physics) at Kalasalingam University, Krishnankoil, Tamil Nadu invented "Santhi Particles," the world’s first and smallest super-paramagnetic particles of plant materials, measuring just 15 nanometre (nm). Super-paramagnetism is a form of magnetism and generally such materials are made from magnetic nanoparticles. Theivasanthi’s four-year-long research in nanotechnology has led to the discovery of the super-paramagnetic nano particles from bio-material. The new particle was tested for its super-paramagnetic character at SAIF, IIT Madras on Feb 19, 2014. She has also developed such particles from turmeric (size 20 nm) and coconut shell (size 18 nm). She believes that the new nano-materials will be useful in cancer diagnostics and treatment.
