Effects of MWNTs on phase change enthalpy and thermal conductivity of a solid-liquid organic PCM

In this paper, researchers investigated the effects of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), on the thermal conductivity and phase change enthalpy of palmitic acid (PA), a solid to liquid phase change material. The research concluded that as the concentration of MWNTs is increased, the thermal conductivity of the composite increases, compared to that of PA alone. Also in this study, researchers investigated the effects of various MWNTs surface modifications, on the ...

Towards Thermoconductive, Electrically Insulating Polymeric Composites with Boron Nitride Nanotubes as Fillers

In this experiment, the thermal conductivity of several composites, with varying matrix composition and boron nitride nanotubes fillers, was investigated. Poly(methyl methacrylate), polystyrene, poly(vinyl butyral) and poly(ethylene vinyl alcohol) were the matrix compositions analyzed. The results indicated that with the addition of the boron nitride nanotube fillers, there was a 20-fold increase in the thermal conductivity of the polymer. Several other properties were analyzed alongside of thermal ...

Thermal conductive PS/graphite composites

Polystyrene (PS)/graphite thermal conductive nano-composites were prepared to verify the high thermal conductivity values with the addition of graphite, as well as the layered structure. The thermal conductivity of PS improved greatly in the presence of the graphite. Researchers used the Maxwell-Eucken model and the Agari model to evaluate thermal conductivity. For the purpose of improving the interfacial compatibility of PS/graphite, three PS fabrication methods were introduced to ...
