By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Researchers detail new data in Condensed Matter. According to news originating from Kolkata, India, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Flower-like nanostructures of NiCo (1:1) in the presence of _le ffamine was synthesized by homogeneous nucleation in 1, 2-propanediol for 3 h. Morphological characterizations performed by scanning and transmission electron microscopy (FESEM and TEM) revealed the average size distribution of 700 am containing 2D nanosheets of similar to 30 nm thickness. The nanoflowers crystallize exclusively in face-centered cubic structures and were confirmed by x-ray diffraction studies."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from S.N. Bose National Center for Basic Sciences, "Various factors, including nature of polyol, concentrations of base and metal salts in precursor proved to affect the geometry of nanoflowers. Magnetic studies revealed the ferromagnetic nature of NiCo nanoflowers with high saturation magnetization and low coercivity (108.6 emufg and 78.4 Oe)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The enhanced shear properties and yield stress of dimorphic MR fluid containing nanoflowers of NiCo in ferrofluids can be attributed to stronger microstructure formation in the presence of magnetic field."
