The dispersibility in an aqueous solution of magnetite nanoparticles was enhanced by appropriate anionic surface treatment. The Fe3O>sub>4 nanoparticles were modified with various types of the precursor to include anionic terminal functional groups. The nanoparticles modified by polyacrylic acid, tri-sodium citrate dihydrate or ammonia exhibited an increased zeta potential owing to the large amount of terminal hydroxyl and carboxyl groups. As a result, the surface-modified particles exhibited improved dispersion behaviour in the aqueous solution owing to a change in the electrostatic force due to the surface charge on each particle. In addition, the physical properties of the surface-modified magnetite nanoparticles were discussed.
