Bottom Line: This article covers recent advances in the last decade by researchers in both pool boiling and convective boiling applications, with nanofluids as the working fluid.Conflicting data have been presented in the literature on the effect that nanofluids have on the boiling heat-transfer coefficient; however, almost all researchers have noted an enhancement in the critical heat flux during nanofluid boiling.Several researchers have observed nanoparticle deposition at the heater surface, which they have related back to the critical heat flux enhancement.

ABSTRACT
There has been increasing interest of late in nanofluid boiling and its use in heat transfer enhancement. This article covers recent advances in the last decade by researchers in both pool boiling and convective boiling applications, with nanofluids as the working fluid. The available data in the literature is reviewed in terms of enhancements, and degradations in the nucleate boiling heat transfer and critical heat flux. Conflicting data have been presented in the literature on the effect that nanofluids have on the boiling heat-transfer coefficient; however, almost all researchers have noted an enhancement in the critical heat flux during nanofluid boiling. Several researchers have observed nanoparticle deposition at the heater surface, which they have related back to the critical heat flux enhancement.

Figure 1: Bar chart to illustrate the increasing trend in journal articles dedicated to nanofluid boiling in the last seven years.

Mentions: There are several review articles concerning nanofluids; some on their potential benefits on heat-transfer applications [5-11] and also some on their thermal conductivity enhancement [3,12]. The use of nanofluids for boiling enhancement is a promising area that is currently being explored by many researchers for pool boiling applications [4,13-16], and more recently, albeit to a lesser extent, in convective boiling applications [17,18]. Figure 1 shows the rapid growth in nanofluid boiling research in recent years. The articles shown in the bar chart of Figure 1 are those that have been published in journals between 2003 and 2010; before 2003, there were no published journal articles found using both keywords 'nanofluid' and 'boiling'. (The authors would like to point out that there have been conference articles concerning 'nanofluids' and 'boiling', but only published journal articles have been considered in Figure 1). There is a sharp increase in nanofluid boiling research in recent years; this is most likely due to the reported enhanced thermal conductivity of nanofluids, and the relatively large gap in the knowledge that exists, concerning the mechanisms involved in nanofluid boiling enhancement.
