Understand the definition of nanotechnology as it applies
in current usage. Learn of one nanomaterial, ferrofluid,
and some of its applications in modern technology.
Create magnetite nanoparticles through a precipitation
reaction, while employing a surfactant to create a colloidal
suspension of magnetite nanoparticles (ferrofluid).
Then examine the response of ferrofluid when exposed
to a magnetic field. Teaching notes included.
