Thermal conductivity enhancement of MWNTs on the PANI/tetradecanol form-stable PCM

Author(s): , , , , , ,

PANI/tetradecanol/MWNTs composites were prepared via in-situ polymerization and analyzed for their use as phase change materials. The MWNTs were randomly dispersed in the composite and it was determined ...
