About this book

Magnetic control of the properties and the flow of liquids is a challenging field for basic research and for applications. This book is meant to be both an introduction to and a state-of-the-art review on this topic. Written in the form of a set of lectures and tutorial reviews, the book addresses the synthesis and characterization of magnetic fluids, their hydrodynamical description and their rheological properties. The book closes with an account of magnetic drug targeting.

Reviews

"Would not it be nice to be able to control the flow of a fluid through the application of a small magnetic field – a field as small as say 10 mT? Indeed it would be, and this is the goal of the 24 authors of the 12 chapters found in this small book. The chapters are to a large extent based on lectures given at the Ninth International Conference on Magnetic Fluids held in 2001. As indicated in the preface, the achievement of the stated goal will surely be a multidisciplinary achievement and will involve chemists, physicists, rheologists, materials scientists, as well as engineers and medical scientists. Both advanced students and professionals from each of these fields will benefit from the insight provided by this book." (Physicalia 25/4, 2003)
