Synthesis and Dispersion of Magnetic Nano-Particles by a Surfactant-Mediated Approach


Article Preview

Magnetic nano-particles of around 20nm synthesized by poly-ethylene glycol (PEG) and sodium oleate mediated approach show well stability without sediment during 6 months. Upon treated through the modification procedure, magnetic nano-particles have a weakly physical bond with PEG, meanwhile a strong bond with sodium oleate. Naked magnetic nano-particles present positive charges on the surface, while turn to be negative when modified with sodium oleate, which suggest that the hydrophilic carboxyl on the surface of the nano-particles is outward. Magnetic property of the nano-particles changes according to the concentrations of reactants and surfactant.
