This research study investigates the tribological behavior of ODA Graphene nano particles as lubricant additives in mineral based paraffin oil. All tests are performed under varying load and 0.2% w/w concentration of nano particles in lubricating oil using ball and disc configuration and four-ball testers. Experimental results state that small percentage of ODA Graphene is improving the friction, anti-wear properties and dynamic viscosity. Coefficient of friction in EHD and boundary regime is decreased by 75% and 61.8% respectively. The results are validated by using the Raman Spectroscopy of worn steel ball to confirm the presence of ODA graphene nano particles.
