  • The key ingredient for these studies was the synthesis of non-toxic ferrofluids by colleagues Bappaditya Samanta and Vincent Rotello at the University of Massachusetts, who developed a method for coating the magnetic nanoparticles with bovine serum albumin (BSA), a protein derived from cow blood.


  • One of the unique properties of these ferrofluids is that they become highly magnetized in the presence of external magnetism, which allows researchers to readily manipulate the chain formation by altering the strength of the magnetic field.


  • Ayse Rezzan Kose (pictured) and Hur Koser of Yale University developed a new method for identifying and sorting diseased cells in blood samples using the magnetic nanoparticles in ferrofluids. - latest science and technology news stories

  • Water-based ferrofluids hold the reflective layer more effectively, but water evaporates so quickly that the mirror could disappear within hours.

  • Making mirrors from ferrofluids is not simple - they are not usually reflective and the normally oily liquid base can only with difficulty be coated with a reflective top layer of silver nanoparticles.
