In this paper, a theoretical and experimental review of main physical properties of magnetic nanoparticles with application in magnetic hyperthermia is presented. In this way, this work has been divided in two parts: In part I, corresponding with this article, a detailed theoretical review about the particles properties and the physical laws that govern them, such as magnetization, interparticles interactions and structuring in colloidal suspensions. In the Part II, subjects such as nanoparticles synthesis, physical characterization and modeling, experimental determination of heat dissipation under radiofrequency fields, and its correlation with the current modells will be presented. This work is intended as a guide because what is expressed therein gives a series of important guidelines to take into account when making a research on magnetic nanoparticles.
