Abstract: High speed microscopy was used to allow real time visualization of the movement of nanoparticles made up of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) and Fe2O3. An electrostatic force was induced to the nanotube/Fe2O3 composite and caused perfect conjugate structures which result in excellent thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. The alignment of the carbon nanotubes in nanosuspensions may offer new opportunities for the development of nanofluids.
