CO2-blown microcellular non-isocyanate polyurethane (NIPU) foams: from bio- and CO2-sourced monomers to potentially thermal insulating materials

Author(s): , , , , , , , , , ,

Low-density microcellular non-isocyanate polyurethane (NIPU) foams were prepared using biological compounds and carbon dioxide. The morphology of these foams was investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and the thermal conductivity ...

Thermal and electrical conductivity enhancement of graphite nanoplatelets on form-stable polyethylene glycol/polymethyl methacrylate composite phase change materials

Author(s): , , , ,

Graphite nano-platelets (GnPs) were dispersed in polyethylene glycol (PEG)/polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) to form a PEG/PMMA/GnPs composite organic form-stable phase change material. The effects of the incorporation of ...

Influence of core materials on thermal properties of melamine-formaldehyde microcapsules

Author(s): ,

A series of melamine-formaldehyde microcapsules were synthesized using an in-situ polymerization and subsequently characterized for their thermal and structural properties. SEM and FT-IR were used to investigate the structural properties ...

Preparation of Monolithic Silica Aerogel of Low Thermal Conductivity by Ambient Pressure Drying

Author(s): , , ,

Monolithic silica aerogels were synthesized with very low thermal conductivity (0.036 W/mK) and high porosity (97%) via ambient pressure drying. This method of drying replaces supercritical drying which is more costly ...
