[Epub ahead of print]This study shows an analysis of the stability of nanofluids based on the eutectic mixture of diphenyl oxide and biphenyl, used as a heat transfer fluid (HTF) in concentrating solar energy, and NiO nanoparticles. Two surfactants were used to analyze the stability of the nanofluids: Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC) and 1-Octadecanethiol (ODT). From an experimental perspective, the stability was analyzed using UV-vis spectroscopy, particle size measurements using the dynamic light scattering technique and potential measurements. Read More
