The solvent-free nonionic nanofluid hybrid material consisting of multiwall carbon
nanotubes (MWNTs) and silica nanoparticles is prepared by a facile route. The content
of MWNTs/silica nanoparticles is up to 31 wt %. The hybrid material exhibits liquid-like
behavior in the absence of solvent at 45 degrees C, which is a wax solid at room temperature.
The process of melting and solidification is reversible over many cycles.
