Thermal conductivity enhancements of nanodiamond particles (NDs) suspended in pure deionized (DI) with different volume fractions in the range from 0.8% to 3% have been measured. The highest observed enhancement in the thermal conductivity is 7.2% for a volume fraction of 3% at a temperature of 30 degrees C. The thermal conductivity increases by about 9.8% as the temperature rises to 50 degrees C. The new Murshed model (Murshed et al. (2009) [31]) was used to describe the heat transfer enhancement in the ND fluid. While the predicted results overestimate the experimental data, they are in agreement within the experimental errors.
