Enhanced thermoelectric properties of hybridized conducting aerogels based on carbon nanotubes and pyrolyzed resorcinol–formaldehyde resin

Multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbonized resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) resin were used to create a conducting aerogel with a high electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient but a low thermal conductivity. The addition of the MWCNTs caused the figure of merit (ZT) for the aerogel to ...

A Comparative Study on Thermal Conductivity and Rheology Properties of Alumina and Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Nanofluids

Numerical models for the calculation of thermal conductivity and rheology behavior of alumina and multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) nanofluids were evaluated by determining these properties experimentally and comparing the results to the models. The thermal conductivity was measured by the transient plane source method, and ...

Thermal contact resistance of epoxy composites incorporated with nano-copper particles and the multi-walled carbon nanotubes

Raw multi-walled carbon nanotubes (r-MWCNTs) and Cu nanoparticles are dispersed in an epoxy matrix in varying quantities to create composite polymers with enhanced thermal conductivities. A study was then conducted to determine if the boundary thermal contact resistance could be reduced by increasing the thermal ...

Improved heat recovery from paraffin-based phase change materials due to the presence of percolating graphene networks

Four different paraffin-based nanocomposite phase change materials (PCMs) were prepared by dispersion of 20 v. % of graphene, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), aluminum, or TiO2 nanoparticles into a paraffin matrix. It was found that the two carbon-based nanoparticles reduced the time required for melting and solidification of ...

Improved Thermal Conductivity of Poly(trimethylene terephthalate-block-poly(tetramethylene oxide) Based Nanocomposites Containing Hybrid Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes/Graphene Nanoplatelets Fillers

Poly(trimethylene terephthalate)-block-poly(tetramethylene oxide) (PTT-PMTO) copolymer-based nanocomposites containing a combination of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) as carbon nanofillers were investigated to determine their thermal conductivities. Nanocomposites having a total carbon nanofiller concentration of 0.4 and 0.6 wt. % were preparared with varying ...
