Nanoparticle hyperthermia treatment is progressing with the passage of time, and with the development in the field of hybrid nanoparticles synthesis. The transient heat transfer in magnetite-graphene nanocomposite in three-dimensions under conduction is studied in this this research. The proposed model is simulated in a finite element solver framework. Novel hybrid nanoparticles were synthesized. Their chemical properties and their heat transfer properties were examined. By mathematical modelling results, the effective hybrid nanoparticle is chosen that can be used as a drug in hyperthermia process. Current developments in nanotechnology have improved the ability to precisely modify the features and properties of MNPs for these biomedical applications. The accurate control on the magnetic properties of the particle is the key in hyperthermia applications. By these magnetic particles, the desired temperature can be achieved for laser hyperthermia. In this article, a detailed investigation is reported for understanding the properties and novelty of the new nanoparticles. The merits and demerits of synthesized hybrid nanoparticles are also discussed with regard to whether the nanocomposites can be implemented as a drug or not.
