Paper Abstract

Comparative study on the ferrophase dimensional distribution within a water ferrofluid was carried out by applying the atomic force microscopy (AFM) scanning and the transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The ferrophase has a magnetite core prepared by chemical co-precipitation and a double layer coating of citric acid. The diameter histograms revealed the main peak at about 9 nm which is concordant with a high degree of stability of the ferrofluid.
