The structure formation observed in binary colloids was studied theoretically. The effect of dipolar forces on the structure formation was analyzed and the possible aggregate and crystalline morphologies determining the corresponding parameter regime of their occurrence were explored. It was shown that the total concentrations of the particles, the relative concentration and the relative dipole moment of the components determine the structure of the colloid. It was found that at low concentrations of the kinetic aggregation of particles results in fractal structures.
