New tannin-lignin aerogels

Tannin and lignin are organic materials that are more cost-effective than synthetic, non-renewable phenolic compounds. In this paper, tannin-lignin-formaldehyde (TLF) composites were used to synthesize thermally insulative mesoporous aerogels. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of two TLF samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the TLF aerogels had better thermal insulation properties than any other organic aerogels reported in the literature, and were well ...

Lignin-phenol-formaldehyde aerogels and cryogels

Lignin and phenol are inexpensive naturally derived resources that can be used to produce cost-effective organic gels. This paper aimed to examine the thermal properties of insulative organic aerogels and cryogels made from lignin and phenol. A thermal analyzer (TPS) measured the thermal conductivity of the gels using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that, as expected, thermal conductivity increased with bulk density. Cryogels were found to be ...

Highly mesoporous organic aerogels derived from soy and tannin 

The first soy and tannin based organic aerogels with 91% naturality have been developed by researchers, and they have low bulk density but high volumes of mesopores. In this experiment, the transient plane source (TPS) method was used to measure the thermal characteristics of the organic aerogels. Results showed that these novelty aerogels are ecologically friendly because they are low cost and renewable but have attractive thermal properties....
