Thermo-Physical Properties of Nanofluids: A Review
Nanoparticles are defined as particles of matter usually between 1 nm and 100 nm. In the developing world, there has been increase in use of engineered nanoparticles thus also a need of commercialization of the technology. Nanoparticles can be synthesized chemically, physically or biologically. In this review we discuss about the synthesis of nanoparticles using chemical method along with study of preparation of nanofluid and their properties.
