Abstract: Over the past decade, research in heat transfer enhancement using nanofluids - suspensions of nanometer-sized solid particles in a base liquid - has received considerable attention all over the world. However, the value of thermophysical properties of suspensions and heat transfer characteristics reported in literature by several authors are in disagreement. Several theoretical works to predict the mechanism of heat transfer enhancement, the effective thermophysical properties of the suspension as well as convective heat transfer, range from a homogeneous model to complex two-phase flow models have been proposed. Validation of theoretical studies with good experimental data is essential for proper understanding of the phenomena. This chapter provides insight into the recent development of nanofluids from preparation, characterization to theoretical aspects and ways to improve nanofluid stability so as to be able to commercialize and implement potential applications. © 2013 Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
