Ultra-thin graphene (UG) has been prepared by exfoliation of graphite oxide by a novel technique based on focused solar radiation. Graphene based engine oil nanofluids have been prepared and their frictional characteristics (FC), anti-wear (AW) and extreme pressure (EP) properties have been evaluated. The improvement in FC, AW and EP properties of nanofluids is respectively by 80%, 33% and 40% compared with base oil. The enhancement can be attributed to the nanobearing mechanism of graphene in engine oil and ultimate mechanical strength of graphene.
