    Apparent wall slip (AWS) effect, accompanying flow of colloidal dispersions in confined geometries, can be important for applications of nanofluids in heat transfer and microfluidics. In this contribution, a series of stable dilute TiO2 aqueous dispersions was prepared and tested for possible presence of the AWS effect by using a novel viscometric technique. The nanofluids, prepared from TiO2 rutile or anatase nanopowders by ultrasonic dispersing in water, were stabilized by adjusting pH to maximum zeta potential. The resulting stable nanofluid samples were extremely dilute, below 0.7 vol%. All they manifest Newtonian behavior with the fluidities following the Einstein formula. No case of important slip contribution was detected: the Navier slip coefficient about 2 mm Pa-1s-1 would affect the apparent fluidity data in a 100 mkm gap by less than 1%
