Key Details

Magnetic nanoplatelet suspensions can transition to an exotic magnetic liquid state

Nanoplatelet size, charge, and magnetic properties determine transition point

Larger, more magnetic plates form magnetic liquids at lower concentrations

More nanoplatelet charge raises transition concentration threshold

Findings aid design of novel magnetic soft matter

Tuning liquid magnet formation in nanoplatelet suspensions

This paper reports on tuning the transition between disordered and magnetically ordered states in suspensions of magnetic iron oxide nanoplatelets dissolved in alcohol. By changing nanoplatelet size, charge, and magnetic properties, the precise concentration threshold to form an exotic magnetic liquid could be shifted up or down. Results further scientific understanding of how delicate balances between competing microscopic particle interactions can dramatically alter bulk material properties.
