The petroleum-based lubricants cause harmful effect on the environment because they are non-degradable and highly toxic. This study reviewed articles from Google Scholar database on the subject of development of biolubricants from non-edible vegetable oil and its modifications; chemically and/or addition of nanoparticles to improve the tribological properties of the oil. 136 articles were gotten from the search and later cut down to 30 after screening. These studies did not conclude that biolubricants obtained with the application of nanoparticles and modification has greater tribological properties together with thermal stability and oxidation stability. There is a need of production of a flexible environmental-friendly nanolubricant having excellent rheological, tribological properties and antioxidant properties which will be suitable in automotive application.
