To mitigate the side effects of medical treatment by Prussian blue (PB), a well-known adsorbent for radioactive cesium (Cs), PB-deposited magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs), were prepared and analyzed on the adsorbent capacity for Cs removal. The PB-deposited MNPs were prepared by photo-deposition method and investigated for their Cs adsorption properties and . The distribution of the adsorbents was also evaluated in C57BL/6 mice. PB-deposited MNPs provided an improved adsorbent capacity for Cs removal and reduced toxicity to blood cells compared with those of bulk PB. PB-deposited MNPs could be considered as an alternative of PB-based medicine to reduce the possible hazards caused by high dose of PB intake.
