Nanofluids consist of nano-scale particles dispersed in a liquid which exhibit the potential for enhanced boiling heat transfer and critical heat flux (CHF). Past experimental results have shown conflicting results and the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood, warranting further study. An experimental program for the study of nanofluid pool boiling is currently under development at McMaster University. Recent literature is briefly reviewed to outline the motivation of the study and a brief description of the future experimental facility is provided.
