Abstract

The demand of automotive lubricant and challenge of its properly disposal after use is gradually increasing. The present study analyze rheological properties of tamanu oil, extracted from Calophyllum iniphyllum seed, to provide an alternative lubricant for electric vehicle. The oil samples are tested in plain and with MWCNT and Cerium oxide nanoparticles. The dispersion of nanoparticles provides reduction in shear thinning behavior and hence improving the lubrication properties
