Magnetic fluid applications require stability under demanding conditions. Complete magnetic fluids and their component surfactants and dispersing oils were irradiated. Their subsequent thermal oxidation was characterized by chemiluminescence and DSC. Except for polyisobutylsuccinic anhydride, irradiation sensitized the components toward oxidation. The components were ranked by stability. Complete fluids were more stable than would be predicted from their components suggesting that they may be used for nuclear applications.
