In this report, we show a simple route to fabricate Janus particles having magnetic nanoparticles inside them, which can respond and rotate along to magnetic fields. By solvent evaporation from the tetrahydrofran solution of polymer stabilized γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles, polystyrene (PS), and polyisoprene containing water, aqueous dispersion of Janus microparticles were successfully prepared, and the γ-Fe2O 3 nanoparticles were selectively introduced into the PS phase. We demonstrate rotation and accumulation of Janus particles by using a neodymium magnet.
