The formation of supramolecular structures forming a transition region at the oil-nanofluid interface with a low surface tension is studied as a result of a synergistic effect in the interaction of planar graphene nanoparticles and silicon carbide nanoparticles coated with graphene layers (Core-shell). In model experiments on a Hele-Shaw cell, it was shown that in a porous medium such hybrid nanofluids have a high displacing ability of residual oil. At the same time, the oil – nanofluid interface remains stable, without the formation of sticky fingers. In the process of research using power electron microscopy, a transition region was observed, in the structuring of which nanoparticles were directly involved. The efficiency of displacement by hybrid nanofluid depends on the concentration of nanoparticles and their interaction.
