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 the PCM by a greater amount than the two other nanoparticles. The graphene-paraffin PCM was found to reduce the melt and re-solidification time by the ...

Thermal transport, thermomechanical, and dielectric properties of chalcogenide Se98–xAg2Inx (x = 0, 2, 4, 6) system

The influence of In content in the Se98-xAg­2Inx (x = 0, 2, 4, 6) system of chalcogenide glasses on the physical properties of the glasses were investigated by the authors. The maximum thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity value was observed for the sample containing 2 at. % In. The microhardness was found to initially decrease upon doping of In for Se; however, it began to slowly increase after a certain In content had been attained. ...

Nano-PCMs for passive electronic cooling applications

The authors have carried out an experimental and numerical study on the effects of seeding Al2O3 nanoparticles in a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) on the thermal conductivity and the latent heat of fusion. It was determined that the addition of the nanoparticles (up to 1 wt. %) resulted in the nano-PCM having a higher thermal conductivity than the pure paraffin wax. The latent heat of fusion was also found ...

Processing of polyurethane/carbon nanotubes composites using novel minimixer

Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) was used to functionalize multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWNT) by grafting to produce MWNT-g-PTMEG. These functionalized nanotubes were then dispersed in thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) to form a TPU/MWNT nanocomposite. It was found that the functionalization resulted in improved dispersion of the nanotubes in the TPU material. The tensile strength and elongation at break of the nanocomposite were also enhanced by the addition of the nanotubes in ...

Influences of template concentration and epoxy functionality on porous epoxy systems: Characteristics of thermal stability, optical, dielectric, and mechanical properties

Porous epoxy thermosets were prepared using poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) as a template. The two epoxies that were used to make the porous thermosets were diglycidylether bisphenol-A (DGEBA), and triphenylolmethane triglycidyl ether (TGTPM). Trimethylolpropane tris(poly(propylene glycol)), amine terminated)ether (T-403) was used as a hardener in producing the thermosets. The porous thermosets were then characterized to determine their structural, thermal, optical, dielectric, and mechanical properties, and the results ...
