Enhanced thermal conductivity by the magnetic field in heat transfer nanofluids containing carbon nanotube

The researchers in this paper were the first to report that the thermal conductivity of the heat transfer nanofluids has the ability to be enhanced by an external magnetic field. This is possible due to carbon nanotubes and magnetic-field-sensitive nanoparticles of Fe2O3. It was ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity by aggregation in heat transfer nanofluids containing metal oxide nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes

The thermal conductivity of heat transfer nanofluids has been determined to increase by 10%, when containing metal oxide nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes. The fluid viscosity of the nanofluids is relatively the same as water, and therefore cannot not account for the increase in thermal conductivity. However, ...

Largely Enhanced Thermal Conductivity and High Dielectric Constant of Poly(vinylidene fluoride)/Boron Nitride Composites Achieved by Adding a Few Carbon Nanotubes

During a melt blending process, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were added to a poly(vinylidene fluoride)/Boron nitride (PVDF/BN) composite, to increase the thermal conductivity of this polymer composite, for uses in the electronic industry. After this process, the thermal and electrical conductivities, along with ...
