Effect of ZnO nanoparticles obtained by arc discharge on thermo-mechanical properties of matrix thermoset nanocomposites

It has been found that ZnO nanoparticles modify the curing behavior and crossed-line density, among other properties, in epoxy systems. This study aimed at studying the thermo-mechanical properties of ZnO nanoparticles. Thermal properties were measured using a transient plane source technique (TPS) in a thermal constants analyzer. The addition of ZnO nanoparticles caused a decrease of the thermally resistant joints. Despite high thermal conductivity of ZnO-NPs, there was high thermal ...

Experimental evaluation and modeling of thermal conductivity of tetrafunctional epoxy resin containing different carbon nanostructures

Recently, 2-D graphene nanoparticles produced by graphite exfoliation are a promising nanofiller for enhancing the thermal conductivity of polymeric materials. Unlike one-dimensional structures of carbon nanotubes, the 2-D structure provides reinforcement of polymer nanocomposites in two directions. In this article, multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and 2-D exfoliated graphite (EG), in a tetrafunctional epoxy resin, are investigated to determine the effect on thermal conductivity. Thermal conductivity measurements were carried out using ...

In-situ synthesis and attachment of colloidal ZnO nanoparticles inside porous carbon structures 

This study investigates the properties of a material to be used as an energy storage medium that can use energy stored from the summer months, and then release it during the winter. The proposed material uses a graphite foam, with ZnO coatings with a flower like morphology, to house a sugar alcohol phase change material (PCM). The thermal conductivity of the material was measured using a transient plane source (TPS) ...
