Monodisperse Au-Fe 3 O 4 heterodimeric nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared by injecting precursors into a hot reaction solution. The size of Au and Fe 3 O 4 particles can be controlled by changing the injection temperature. UV-Vis spectra show that the surface plasma resonance band of Au-Fe 3 O 4 heterodimeric NPs was evidently red-shifted compared with the resonance band of Au NPs of similar size. The as-prepared heterodimeric Au-Fe 3 O 4 NPs exhibited superparamagnetic properties at room
