Nanofluids are a fluids containing nanometer-sized particles, called nanoparticles. These fluids are Suspension of nanoparticles in conventional fluids. Nanofluids have been the subject of intensive study worldwide since pioneering researchers recently discovered the anomalous thermal behavior of these fluids. The enhancement of heat transfer using nanofluids have been used as one of the passive heat transfer techniques in several heat transfer applications. It is considered to have great potential for heat transfer enhancement and are highly suited to application in heat transfer processes like microelectronics, fuel cells, pharmaceutical processes, and hybrid-powered engines, engine cooling/vehicle thermal management, domestic refrigerator, chiller, heat exchanger, and in boiler flue gas temperature reduction. This review covers the enhancement of heat transfer by using nanofluids and potential applications of nanofluids. This paper presents an updated review of the heat transfer applications of nanofluids to develop directions for future work because the literature in this area is spread over a wide range of disciplines, including heat transfer, material science, physics, chemical engineering and synthetic chemistry.
