Nanofluids are dilute colloidal suspensions of nanoparticlesin a base fluid that exhibit
thermal properties superior than that of the conventional fluid. The application of nanofluids
is to achieve the highest possible thermal properties at the smallest possible concentrations, by
homogeneous dispersion and stable suspension of nanoparticles in the host fluids. Nanofluids
plays vital role in various thermal applications such as automotive industries, heat
exchangers, solar power generation etc. Mostly heat transfer augmentation in solar collectors
is one of the key issues in energy saving, compact designs and different operational
temperatures. In this paper, a comprehensive literature on thermo physical properties of
nanofluids and the application of solar collector with nanofluids have been compiled and
reviewed. Recent literatures indicate the conventional heat transfer using nanofluids and their
specific applications in the solar collector.
