Abstract—The Zno Nano particles are Synthesized by using metal organic complex of Zinc using microwave radiation. The nanoparticles are blended with distilled water by sonication and improvement in thermal conductivity is measured for different concentrations of nanoparticles. The improved thermal conductivity will enhance the heat transfer significantly.
Index Terms—Nanofluids, Microwave radiation, Thermal conductivity
