Cobalt, iron, nickel and iron carbide nanocrystallites, stabilized within carbon beads, were prepared by the three-step procedure including formation of metal acrylamide complex, followed by frontal polymerization and pyrolysis of the polymer at various temperatures. The beads containing the nanocrystallites exhibit domination of the ferromagnetic ordering. The analysis of calorimetric results allowed estimation of the efficiency of the hyperthermal effect, under the influence of an alternating magnetic field. The XTT tests show that the extracts prepared on the basis of the Fe3C containing beads are nontoxic, whereas these made of the composites containing Co and Ni exhibit negligible cytotoxicity for the test article/-vehicle ratios 6.25 and 3.125 mg/ml.
