The goal of this literature review was to assess, organize, and synthesize the growing body of research on the use of nonmaterial’s as lubricant additives and to help provide more effective guidelines for future study and development in this area. Through statistical comparison, the chemical, physical, and morphological characteristics of nanoparticles performance were investigated. Analysis was done on how those particles affected friction, wear and thermal conductivity. Using information gathered from the literature, mechanisms of lubrication using nanoparticles were examined. Energy saving, pollution reduction, and environmental preservation all benefit greatly from the use of lubricants with addition of nanofillers to reduce friction and wear. Nanolubricant compounds have seen substantial advances in both academic study and commercial use as a result of these two trends. This article provides an overview of the various types of nanofillers addition in lubricating oil to form compounds and provides examples of their tribological characteristics. Survey also focused that, based on the data, nanofluids have much higher heat transmission than the basic oil. It's more than just up-to-date with the latest tech.
