SiC Nanowires with Tunable Hydrophobicity/Hydrophilicity and Their Application as Nanofluids

The purpose of this study was to improve the wettability of silicon carbide (SiC) nanowires, in order for them to be used as thermoconductive fluids. Multiple experiments were conducted by exposing the SiC nanowires to hydrofluoric acid, tetraethyl orthosillicate, polyvinylpyrolidone and sodium hydroxide. Various tests, ...

Effects of copper nanowires on the properties of an organic phase change material

An organic phase change material (PCM), tetradecanol (TD), infused with copper nanowires (CuNWs), was sent through a slurry of tests, to determine the effect of the ultra-high aspect ratio and sponge nature of the CuNWs, on the PCM. Experimental testing alluded to the increased thermal ...

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 ...
