Pool boiling of Novec 7300 fluid and self-rewetting water-heptanol mixtures on bare copper surface and a copper surface coated with copper-plated nanofibers is studied experimentally. The experimental data revealed a significant increase in the heat removal rate up to the critical heat flux (CHF) on the copper-plated nanofiber surfaces in comparison with bare copper surfaces. Also, the critical heat flux increases on the copper-plated nanofiber surface, albeit it is reached at a lower surface superheat in comparison with bare copper surface. Prolong boiling in water facilitates oxidation of the layer of copper-plated nanofibers, and diminishes its roughness, albeit does not affect the heat transfer rate.
