Thermal energy storage performance of paraffin-based composite phase change materials filled with hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets

A paraffin-based composite phase change material (PCM) was prepared by the addition of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets to melted paraffin wax followed by vigorous stirring. The nanosheets were added in quantities ranging from 1 to 10 wt. %. A reference sample of pure paraffin was also prepared. ...

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. ...

An experimental investigation of melting of nanoparticle-enhanced phase change materials (NePCMs) in a bottom-heated vertical cylindrical cavity

A nanoparticle-enhanced phase change material (NePCM) is prepared by the dispersal of carbon nanotubes in 1-dodecanol. The objective of this experiment was to determine if the addition of nanoparticles could increase the thermal conductivity of the base PCM while resulting in a NePCM that would ...

Preparation and thermal properties of polyethylene glycol/expanded graphite blends for energy storage

Through the addition of expanded graphite (EG) to polyethylene glycol, the authors were able to enhance the thermal conductivity of the phase change material (PCM). The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the PCM. The amount of EG ...

Increased Thermal Conductivity of Eicosane-Based Composite Phase Change Materials in the Presence of Graphene Nanoplatelets

The addition of graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) to a paraffin-based solvent, eicosane was performed at various wt.% and subsequently the synthesized GNP/eicosane composites were analyzed by a variety of machines. The characterization of the GNP/eicosane composites was performed by the TPS technique for the ...
