The possibility to conduct the experiment on small-angle neutron scattering on very dilute magnetic fluids (the volume fraction of magnetite is ~0.1%) is discussed. The aim of these experiments is to determine the structural parameters of these fluids using the Guinier approximation. Primary attention is concentrated on the experimental observation of a nonmagnetic layer on the surfaces of magnetic nanoparticles dispersed in a liquid carrier. Significant parameters are determined, and conditions for the experiment on the contrast variation are chosen in model calculations.
