Enhanced thermoelectric properties of hybridized conducting aerogels based on carbon nanotubes and pyrolyzed resorcinol–formaldehyde resin

Multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbonized resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) resin were used to create a conducting aerogel with a high electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient but a low thermal conductivity. The addition of the MWCNTs caused the figure of merit (ZT) for the aerogel to increase by two orders of magnitude. The researchers determined that it was possibly to control the electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and Seebeck coefficient independently of ...

Electrical and thermal conductivities of multiwalled carbon nanotubes-reinforced high performance polymer nanocomposites 

Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) have applications in the aeronautic industry. This study examined how the concentration of MWCNT affects the electrical and thermal conductivities of nanocomposites. A thermal analyzer (TPS) measured the thermal properties of the nanocomposites using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that thermal conductivity of the samples increased with MWCNT concentration and temperature, but the phenoxy-MWCNT nanocomposites had higher thermal properties than the PES-MWCNT nanocomposites....

Synergetic effect of hybrid boron nitride and multi-walled carbon nanotubes on the thermal conductivity of epoxy composites

Adding metallic nanoparticles to a conventional fluid increases the thermal conductivity of the solution. In this study, flaked boron nitride (BN) and high-aspect-ratio multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were added to epoxy composites to increase thermal conductivity. A thermal analyser measured the thermal conductivity of the nanofluids using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that adding a small volume of MWCNT to the epoxy composite significantly improved thermal conductivity ...

Thermally conductive, insulated polyimide nanocomposites by AlO(OH)-coated MWCNTs

In this paper, a thermally conductive insulated inorganic nanolayer of AlO(OH) was coated onto the surface of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) to create a novel thermally conductive material. The coating of MWCNTs with this inorganic layer can effectively avoid the formation of electrically conductive networks in the Pi matrix and provides excellent thermal (conductivity) properties....

Morphology, mechanical, cross-linking, thermal, and tribological properties of nitrile and hydrogenated nitrile rubber/multi-walled carbon nanotubes composites prepared by melt compounding: The effect of acrylonitrile content and hydrogenation

Nanocomposites were prepared by the mixing of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with nitrile and hydrogenated nitrile elastomers (NBR and HNBR). A variety of methods including TEM, SEM, and XRD were used in order to investigate the morphology of the nanocomposites. Many mechanical properties of the nanocomposites were measured and reported. A machine was used to measure the thermal properties of the synthesized nanocomposites....
