Experimental investigation on the ammonia adsorption and heat transfer characteristics of the packed multi-walled carbon nanotubes

The potential for the use of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) for the adsorption of ammonia in solid-gas adsorption refrigeration applications has been investigated by experimental determination of ammonia adsorption properties, as well as the thermal conductivity of a composite adsorption material. In addition to this, ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity of n-octadecane containing carbon-based nanomaterials

The use of organic compounds as phase change materials (PCMs) is limited by the low thermal conductivity of these compounds. In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) were dispersed in n-octadecane to determine if this nanocomposite PCM would have a higher ...

Thermal Conductivity Enhancement by using Nano-Material in Phase Change Material for Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage Systems

Al2O3, TiO2 nanoparticles, and carbon nanotubes were added to Iraqi paraffin wax in varying quantities to determine the optimum filler content for the enhancement of thermal conductivity. The thermal conductivity was enhanced by 65 and 40% for samples containing 5 wt. % of Al2O3 and TiO2 nanoparticles, ...

Thermal Conductivity of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Dispersions: Role of Interfacial Effects

The thermal transport properties of nanofluids containing single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in ethylene glycol and (poly)-alpha olefins (PAO) were investigated. It was found that the addition of SWCNTs enhanced the thermal conductivity of each of the two base fluids, with this enhancement increasing as ...
