Nanofluids, Ultrasonic Properties, Ultrasonic Velocity, Thermal Conductivity, Adiabatic Compressibility, Reduction, Tannic Acid.



By dispersing nanoparticles in a base fluid, we get a colloidal suspension called Nanofluids. These possess important properties required in thermal engineering application, physical, chemical stability and high thermal conductivity. In this work, we have synthesized Silver, Copper and Nickel nanofluids by greener reduction method, using Tannic acid. So prepared nanofluids were characterized by UV-Visible Spectroscopy and Dynamic Light Scattering Techniques. We have measured Ultrasonic Velocity of synthesized nanofluid by using Nanofluid Interferometer NF-10 as a function of concentration, at different temperature, also we have calculated Thermal Conductivity and Adiabatic Compressibility of the nanofluids.
