Nano-Phase Change Materials for Electronics Cooling Applications

Passive cooling is a method of dissipating heat rejected by electronic devices, and when associated to a phase change can be very effective. Phase change materials (PCMs) are widely used for thermal storage applications due to their ability to store and release large amounts of ...

Shape-stabilized phase change materials based on fatty acid eutectics/expanded graphite composites for thermal storage 

HVAC systems have become very popular, but require a lot of thermal storage. One way to provide this storage is through phase change materials (PCM). This report investigates using expanded graphite to improve the thermal conductivity of a capric, lauric and oleic acid mixture PCM. ...

Thermal characterization of nitrates and nitrates/expanded graphite mixture phase change materials for solar energy storage 

Nitrate materials play an important role in the development of latent thermal energy storage (LTES) systems. This paper examined the thermo-physical properties of sodium nitrate, potassium nitrate and their mixtures with expanded graphite (EG) additives for their applications in solar energy storage. The transient hot-wire ...

Preparation and thermal characterization of paraffin/metal foam composite phase change material 

Paraffin is an excellent phase change material (PCM) for latent heat storage, but it does not efficiently use stored energy because of its low thermal conductivity. In this study, nickel and copper foams were added to paraffin to enhance heat transfer. A Thermal Constants Analyzer ...

Preparation and thermal performance of gypsum boards incorporated with microencapsulated phase change materials for thermal regulation 

Phase change materials (PCMs) store large amounts of latent heat over small temperature ranges, so their application in the thermal regulation of buildings is becoming more popular. However, PCMs have low thermal conductivities, so micro-encapsulated PCMs (micro-PCMs) are being incorporated into PCMs to enhance their ...
