Physical and magnetic properties of newly synthesized Gd-substituted ferrite ferrofluid is studied. The particle size is derived from X-ray, magnetisation and viscosity measurements. This fluid has low-curie temperature, 348 K. The study indicates that it is possible to enhance the pyromagnetic coefficient of the magnetic fluid using Gd.
