In this work, we investigated the local colloidal structure of ferrofluid, in the presence of the external magnetic field. The nanoparticles studied here are of the core-shell type, with the core formed by manganese ferrite and maghemite shell, and were synthesized by the coprecipitation method in alkaline medium. Measures of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) performed in the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) were used for the study of the local colloidal structure of ferrofluid, so it was possible to study two levels of structure, cluster and isolated particles, in the regimes with and without applied magnetic field. In the methodology used here there is a combination of the information obtained in the system with and without magnetic field application. In this way, it is possible to undertake a better investigation of the colloidal dispersion. The theoretical formalism used: (i) the unification equation proposed by Beaucage G.; (ii) the analysis of the radial distribution function p ( r ) and (iii) theoretical calculation of the radius of gyration as a function of the moment of inertia of the spherical of n-nanoparticles.
