We apply the chemical solution method to synthesize CuS/Cu2S nanofluids and experimentally measure their thermal conductivity. The measured thermal conductivity shows that the presence of nanoparticles can either upgrade or downgrade fluid conductivity, a phenomenon predicted by the recent thermal-wave theory of nanofluids.
