Thermal transport of oil and polymer composites filled with carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have extremely high thermal conductivity and can raise the thermal conductivity of a polymer matrix when used as an additive. Previous research has shown that random CNT orientation in polymer matrices gives a much lower thermal conductivity value than a specific alignment direction. This project tested the thermal conductivity of oils and polymers. Results were encouraging, with the thermal conductivity of the composites increasing linearly with the ...

Effects of MWNTs on phase change enthalpy and thermal conductivity of a solid-liquid organic PCM

In this paper, researchers investigated the effects of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), on the thermal conductivity and phase change enthalpy of palmitic acid (PA), a solid to liquid phase change material. The research concluded that as the concentration of MWNTs is increased, the thermal conductivity of the composite increases, compared to that of PA alone. Also in this study, researchers investigated the effects of various MWNTs surface modifications, on the ...
