Nano materials are now used in different industries as they can solve many environmental issues. In this line, cooling towers as important parts of petrochemical industries have always received special attention where their role in increasing the environmental issues are taken into account. In this study new samples of organic-metallic nickel nanostructures were synthesized as new nanofluid options in the field of dry cooling towers and using ultrasonic method. Synthetic samples were analyzed by SEM, XRD and FTIR analyses. The results showed that the nanofluids developed have a uniform morphology and that their crystal properties were confirmed by the XRD model. As the application of nanofluids in the dry cooling tower is expected; hence, they can improve the thermal specifications and that the analysis results of TG-DSC confirmed this claim.
