Magnetic nanocomposite films, comprised of a genetically engineered silk-elastin-like protein (SELP) and CoFe2O4 nanoparticles (CFO NPs) with concentrations varying between 5 and 20 wt%, were produced by solvent casting. The obtained materials were analysed regarding their morphology, physical-chemical, thermal, mechanical and magnetic properties. It was found that the magnetic NPs are homogenously distributed among the film and do not induce any significant alterations in their physical-chemical properties. Regarding the thermal properties, the onset degradation temperature of the SELP-59-A f ...
