|Abstract:||Synthesis of copper nanofluid by a one-step method involving the reduction of copper sulfate by glucose in the presence of sodium lauryl sulfate has been reported. The method relies on the simultaneous formation and dispersion of the copper nanoparticles in the base fluid. Effects of various reaction parameters on the size and reaction rate are investigated using different techniques. Thermal conductivity and viscosity measurements of the nanofluid are also carried out. Sedimentation measurement reveals that the fluid is stable for a minimum period of six weeks. The reported method is found to be rapid, simplistic, and cost effective. 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.|
