Abstract: An investigation on the enhancement of the thermal conductivity of water with the addition of multiwalled carbon nanotubes, (C-MWNT). C-MWNT occupied 0.6% of the volume in the test sample for every test repetition. Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) was used as a dispersant. The measurement device was a transient hot wire, which was constructed for this purpose. The highest these procedures could raise the thermal conductivity was by 38%.
