  3. Abstract:
  4. In the present paper, several experimental and theoretical studies conducted on the thermal conductivity of nanofluids are represented and investigated. Based on the reviewed studies, various factors affect thermal conductivity of nanofluids such as temperature, the shape of nanoparticles, concentration and etc. Results indicated the increase in temperature and concentration of nanoparticles usually leads to the higher thermal conductivity of nanofluids. In addition, it is concluded that there are some novel approaches in order to obtain nanofluids with more appropriate thermal properties including using binary fluids as the base fluid or utilizing hybrid nanofluids. © 2018 Elsevier B.V
