Nanofluids are dilute suspensions of nanoparticulates (e.g. micelles, globular proteins, metal particles). They are widely investigated for their enhanced thermophysical properties , but their unique spreading behavior also make them potentially useful for soil remediation, lubrication, and oil recovery, among other applications .
