h-BN nanoparticles when added to hydrocarbona base oil alone exhibit low friction and low wear-reducing abilities. In automotive oil the dispersantis one of the additives and participates in solubilization of h-BN nano-particles. Also, solubilization will reduce adhesion of h-BN particles on the steel surfaces. Low dispersant concentrations under control are required for a new generation of automotive oils.
