Experiments in Nanotechnology: Ferrofluids

Students explore the world of nanotechnology by synthesizing ferrofluids in a series of chemical reactions. In small groups, they follow the procedure to create the ferrofluids using precise measuring techniques. They test the resulting fluid with a magnetic to see of the liquid demonstrates magnetic spiking.
