This paper reviews the improvement in the heat pipe’s performance using nanofluid as the working fluid. The use of nanofluid enhances heat transfer in the heat pipe due to its improved thermo-physical properties, such as a higher thermal conductivity. Nanofluids proved to be the innovative approach to a variety of applications, such as electronics, medical instruments, and heat exchangers. The influence of different nanoparticles on heat pipe’s performance has been studied. Utilizing nanofluid as the working fluid leads to a significant reduction in heat pipe thermal resistance, an increase in maximum heat transfer, and an improvement of heat pipe thermal performance.
