Rheological study of anisometric pigment particle suspensions — •Yong Geng, Alexey Eremin, and Ralf Stannarius — Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, FNW/IEP/ANP, Postfach 4120, 39016 Magdeburg, Germany

Rheological properties of colloidal suspensions formed by nanometer size rod-shaped pigment particles dispersed in a non-polar solvent are studied. Experiments have shown that these suspensions possess unusual properties such as liquid crystalline behaviour at high dispersant concentration, field-induced phase separation at low and intermediate concentrations, switching in electric fields, and a reversible response to the adsorbing light affecting current transients in sandwich cells.1,2 By doping with small amounts of ferrofluid these pigment dispersions can form a basis for magneto-responsive materials. A strong magneto-optical effect has been confirmed. In our studies, we demonstrate a strong shear-induced birefringence and shear thinning behaviour in pure dispersions. We also discuss the effects of magnetic fields on the rheological properties of the pigment/ferrofluid mixtures. This helped to get a deeper insight into the properties of these suspensions and understand the mechanisms of the structural changes under external field such as electric, magnetic and flow.
