Paper Title:
Effect of Surfactant Excess in Non-Polar Ferrofluids Probed by Small-Angle Neutron Scattering
  Abstract

The microstructure of ferrofluids (magnetite/oleic acid/benzene) with an excess of free oleic acid is investigated by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). For such excess higher than 25 vol. % a sharp break in the stability of ferrofluids occurs followed by coagulation and precipitation. Below this value the influence of the surfactant excess on the stability of ferrofluids is insignificant; neither particle aggregation nor surfactant agglomeration is observed. The interaction of free acid molecules in the ferrofluids is compared with that in pure benzene solutions. A significant increase in the attraction is observed for acid molecules in the ferrofluids, which is related to the loss of magnetic fluids stability at high excess of acid.
