Paramagnetic fluids optimization of the chemical synthesis of magnetite ferrofluids

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Chemistry

Abstract Ferrofluids are paramagnetic liquids. The fluid is made up from a stable suspension of magnetic nanoparticles. This study investigates the synthesis of magnetite based ferrofluids with focus on the parameters of the precipitation of magnetite particles using iron(II), iron(III) and ammonium ions. Under the hypothesis that the precipitation speed and pH value had major […]
