Ferrofluids are colloidal liquids made of nanoscale ferromagnetic particles suspended in a carrier fluid (usually an organic solvent or water.) Large ferromagnetic particles can be ripped out of the homogeneous colloidal mixture, forming a separate clump of magnetic dust when exposed to strong magnetic fields.
