Enhanced comprehensive performance of polyethylene glycol based phase change material with hybrid graphene nanomaterials for thermal energy storage

In this study, high performance composite phase change materials (PCMs) were created. Graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets were used as supporting materials to keep the shape of polyethylene glycol (PEG) stable during phase change, and graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) were used as conductive fillers. Thermal conductivity was ...

Effect of Thermal Interface on Heat Flow in Carbon Nanofiber Composites

The authors have presented a study on the effect of interface thermal resistance on thermal conductivity in carbon nanofiber (CNF) composites. Upon measuring the thermal conductivities of nanocomposites with varying filler concentrations, it was found that the measured thermal conductivities were much lower than those ...

Thermal conductivity improvement of composite carbon foams based on tannin-based disordered carbon matrix and graphite fillers

Composite carbon foams were prepared by mixing tannin-based resin with various graphite powders in an effort to improve the thermal conductivity relative to pristine carbon foams in order to use them as hosts for phase-change materials. It was found that using graphite powder with smaller ...

The heat is on: graphene applications

As electronic devices approach nanometer scales, heat distribution becomes nonuniform and hot spots begin to form. Integrating graphene into nanoelectronics enhances thermal conductivity and heat flow which mitigates hot spots. In this experiment, large quantities of graphene were produced and thermal conductivity was measured by ...


Ultralow cost reticulated carbon foams from household cleaning pad wastes

In this paper, cost efficient RVC foams were fabricated from household cleaning pad waste (CPW) and sucrose. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the RVC foams using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the CPW foams ...
