Aqueous ferrofluids based on manganese and cobalt ferrites

Synthesis of two new aqueous ferrofluids is performed chemically according to Massart's procedure. Manganese and cobalt ferrite magnetic particles are precipitated and treated in order to obtain colloidal sols by creating a charge density on their surface. Such “ionic” ferrofluids can be prepared in an acidic (after a treatment by ferric nitrate) or in an alkaline medium at a concentration as high as 17moll−1, i.e. a volumic fraction of 0.26. This result makes these new compounds of great interest.
