Preparation, Properties, Stability and Applications of Nanofluids: A Review
A nanofluid is a fluid containing nanometer-sized particles, typically made of metals, oxides, carbides, or carbon nanotubes. All methods of preparation can be categorized into two types, viz., single-step method and two-step method. The thermophysical properties such as thermal conductivity, specific heat, viscosity, and density play a vital role in the heat transfer behaviour of nanofluids. Nanofluids have a broad range of current and future applications in different fields. Though nanofluids have a wide range of applications, it has to suffer by some challenges, and limitations like to maintain the stability and operational performance. In this paper, we are going to deal with all the above aspects of nanofluids.
