An experimental study is carried out to the performance and emission characteristics of Mosambi peel pyro oil in a direct injection single cylinder diesel engine by using the Nano Rhodium Oxide (Rh2O3) as an additive which is in turn prepared by the ball milling process with the particle size characterised by Scanning Electron Microscope to be in the range of 100 nm. The resulting effect of the Rh2O3 is scrutinized in comparison with the neat diesel and the neat Mosambi peel pyro biodiesel as well. The nanoparticles added to the biodiesel minimizes the carbon deposits and aids to improvise the anti wear operation that leads to a better performance with reduced emission characteristics of the engine. The nanoparticles blended pyro oil in contrary to the neat diesel is observed to have reduced the NOx emissions up to 34% and the Unburnt hydrocarbon (UBHC) up to 40%. By releasing the energy to the fuel, Rh2O3 has reduced the energy consumption and enhanced the Thermal efficiency.
