Enhanced thermal conductivity of n octadecane containing carbon based nanomaterials

This paper focused on determining the thermal conductivity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) that were dispersed throughout n-octadecane as phase change materials (PCMs). The Thermal Constants Analyzer TPS measured the thermal conductivity of the n-octadecane samples at solid and liquid phases using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the solid phase n¬-octadecane/MWCNTs samples increased with nanotube concentration. ...

Flame retardancy through carbon nanomaterials: carbon black, multiwall nanotubes, expanded graphite, multi-layer graphene and graphene in polypropylene

This research aims to determine the effect of altering filler particle sizes and shapes, on the thermal and mechanical properties of polypropylene (PP). Fillers such as thermally reduced graphite oxide (TRGO), multi-layer graphene (MLG250), carbon black (CB), multiwalled nanotubes (MWNT) and expanded graphite (EG), were added to the PP base. A thermal analyzer was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the various PP composites. Results determined that the PP ...
