What is it about?
Graphene is an allotropic of carbon in the form of a two-dimensional, atomic-scale, hexagonal lattic in which one atom forms each vertex. The structure of graphene is similar to other allotrope like graphite, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. Graphene is a 2D building block of other carbon materials with all other dimensionalities. It has the ability to convert into 0D Bucky balls, 1D nanotubes or 3D graphite. Graphene nanoﬂuids have the applications in nuclear system cooling, space and defense, solar absorption, mechanical application, magnetic sealing, biomedical application, heat transfer intensiﬁcation, electronic application, transportation, industrial cooling application and heat building and reducing pollution. So graphene nanoﬂuids are the important subject of research area.

Why is it important?
Thermal management is a major concern for many technology that deals with high power. At the present time, there is a need of growing energy, precision manufacturing, miniaturization, nuclear regulations since critical economies demand high efﬁcient coolants and lubricants. These issues can be overcome by the use of nanoﬂuids which is the research area of interest of many research scholars. In this regard graphene nanoliquids have proven good results.
