The nanoscale liquid was prepared in this research by dissolving nanoparticles in water at room temperatures and in a range of different concentrations (0.1-1.5) and by manual and mechanical mixing and analyzing the homogeneous distribution through SEM. The improvement in thermal conductivity in liquids was studied. Nanoparticles, which reach 1.7 at a temperature of 32 Celsius, with an increase of more than 45% over the original liquid without addition, and an increase in the viscosity of the liquid with the addition of nanoparticles, as well as a decrease in the viscosity to reach 0.006 with a rise in temperatures of up to 27 Celsius. The practical results have also been compared with a set of theories, and there has been a convergence of lower temperatures, and a decrease in the convergence with higher temperatures.
