In this study, heat transfer characteristics of multi-walled carbon nanotube based nanofluids were investigated in horizontal microtubes with outer and inner diameters of ∼1067 and ∼889 μm, respectively. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with outer diameter of 10–20 nm and length of 1–2 micron as non-spherical nanoparticles were used for nanofluid preparation, where water was considered as basefluid. Nanofluid was characterized using the Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). According to obtained results, deposited CNTs have considerable effect on the convective heat transfer inside the microtube.
