Preparation and characterization of thermally conductive polystyrene/carbon nanotubes composites

Researchers in this study aimed to develop polymer composites with high thermal conductivity, using polystyrene (PS) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). These composites were prepared by ultrasonic radiation, through a simple-solution-evaporation method. Poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride) (PSMA), with a benzene group and experiencing a strong affinity for PS was used as a base, to allow the MWNTs to be dispersed within the composite (MWNT-g-SMA). Results determined that the addition of MWNTs ...

Thermal conductivity enhancement of Ag nanowires on an organic phase change material

Increasing the thermal conductivity of an organic phase change material, all the while maintaining a high phase change enthalpy, is a difficult task. In this study, researchers took 1-tetradecanol/Ag nanowires composites, containing various wt% of Ag nanowires, and tested their thermal conductivities and phase change enthalpies. The results suggest the PCM composite containing 62.73 wt% of Ag nanowires is the most promising candidate for thermal conductivity enhancement of organic phase ...
