Innovative applications of nanofluids

Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary field with substances in biology, chemistry, physics and engineering all being studied at the nanoscale. At this scale, materials possess radically different physico-chemical properties and altering the structure of a nanoparticle can alter its functionality. Although often difficult to predict, it is the unique properties of nanomaterials that science is looking to harness for a range of dramatically different applications. To date nanotechnology has been used in the creation of sunscreens, self cleaning glass, antimicrobial bandages and medical devices to name but a few. NanoHex hopes to demonstrate how the unique thermal properties of nanofluids may benefit any industry requiring thermal management by applying it to both data centre and power electronics industry.
