What is ferrofluid?

In short, ferrofluid, sometimes called ferro-magnetic fluid, is a liquid that responds to magnets and magnetic fields. It is made up of extremely fine ferro-magnetic particles (like nano-sized iron filings), coated with a soap-like material called a surfactant, and suspended in a mineral oil liquid base.
