Hullo Everybody,


I am currently working in the area of ferrofluids for enhanced thermal conductivity. The synthesized ferrofluid is not stable even after adding stabilizers. 

If anyone has any experience in the synthesis of ferrofluids, kindly let me know the solution to the problem stated above. I have also carried out the zeta potential studies but no satisfying results has been obtained till now. 

Awaiting a positive response from the members of nanopaprika community.

Hi budy
I am suman/mtech in nano//anna univ//U add polyvinyl in to it//it ll stabilized//and check with zeta potential//
please enquire further to my gmail account

Thanks mate.




There is a team in Romania highly specialized in the development of ferrofluids and magnetic nanofluids:


Laboratory of Magnetic Fluids Centre of Fundamental and Advanced Technical Research, Romanian Academy,Timisoara Division, Timisoara, Romania


Professors Doina Bica (now deceased) and Prof. Landislau Vekas have an extensive body of work on the subject. Maybe you can find help in their published work.

Good luck in your work,



Hullo Paulo,


Thank you so much for your timely reply. May i know your research interests?



Dear Roshan

This very recent open access paper might be helpful through.

All the best.




Hullo Dr. Haranath,


Thank you for the link. I really find it useful sir.



Which stabilisers you are using at %

Which place r u working

Hullo Shiva,

I am using acetic acid and citric acid as stabilizers for 1%, 2.5% PVA FF, 3% GELATIN FF, 0.05 M GLYCINE FF AND 0.01% BSA FF.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
