Abstract

This study described the synthesis and the tribological properties of surface modified Field's alloy nanoparticles, which was prepared by a facile one-step nanoemulsion method and using ethyl carbamate as surfactant, as additives in liquid poly-alfa-olefin (PAO) oil. The size and morphology of nanoparticles were investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The zeta potential, viscosity and stability properties of the surface modified nanoparticles suspended in PAO oil (called nanofluid) with different mass concentration were measured by a viscometer and Zeta potential analyzer, respectively. The tribological properties of the nanofluid are tested by a ball to disk wear and friction machine. Compared to pure PAO oil, the results showed that the nanofluid have better lubricating behaviors. When the mass concentration of modified nanoparticles was 0.08 wt%, both of the friction coefficient and the wear scar diameter were smallest.
