A novel sebacic acid/expanded graphite composite phase change material for solar thermal medium-temperature applications

Sebacic acid (SA) can be absorbed into the pores of expanded graphite (EG) to form a SA/EG composite phase change material (PCM). There is no chemical interaction between the SA and EG, they are merely integrated. The optimal amount of SA was found to be 85 wt.% of the total mixture. The 85 wt.% composite had a phase change temperature of ~ 128°C, with a latent heat of ~ 187 J/g. The thermal ...

Thermal Conductivity of High Temperature Multicomponent Materials with Phase Change

The authors created a series of composite latent storage materials (CLSM) using expanded graphite (EG) and a two different metal nitrate phase change materials (K and Li, K and Na). The steady-state comparative method was used in order to measure thermal conductivities because it was deemed the best technique. Properties investigated that were related to the effective thermal conductivity were material temperature and microstructure and their effect on thermal conductivity....
