A comprehensive database of thermophysical properties of nanofluids composed of a base fluid and a single type of nanoparticle has been developed by collecting the available experimental data in published scientific literature. The database currently contains 5114 data records of thermophysical properties of nanofluids consisting of combinations of 12 base fluids and 18 nanoparticle types. The collected experimental data include a number of thermodynamic properties (i.e. density, heat capacity, vapor pressure) as well as transport properties (i.e. thermal conductivity, dynamic viscosity). The development process of the database and the faced challenges are described. Recommendations for reporting thermophysical properties of nanofluids
are drawn, based on the current status of the available data.
