Thermal Conductivity Enhancement of Solid Eicosane-Based Silver Nanostructure-Enhanced Phase Change Materials for Thermal Energy Storage

With a goal of wider usage of renewable energy sources that are clean and sustainable, effective technologies, such as thermal energy storage (TES), play a vital role in storing thermal energy for future use. In this study, silver nanoparticles were dispersed in paraffin wax, eicosane, ...


Nano-Phase Change Materials for Electronics Cooling Applications

Passive cooling is a method of dissipating heat rejected by electronic devices, and when associated to a phase change can be very effective. Phase change materials (PCMs) are widely used for thermal storage applications due to their ability to store and release large amounts of ...

Polymer encapsulated paraffin wax to be used as phase change material for energy storage

In this thesis study, the sensor was used to characterize polymer encapsulated paraffin waxes as phase change materials (PCM). The main purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the polystyrene (PS) and PS: wax microcapsules on the morphology and thermal, mechanical and ...


Thermal Conductivity Enhancement by using Nano-Material in Phase Change Material for Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage Systems

Al2O3, TiO2 nanoparticles, and carbon nanotubes were added to Iraqi paraffin wax in varying quantities to determine the optimum filler content for the enhancement of thermal conductivity. The thermal conductivity was enhanced by 65 and 40% for samples containing 5 wt. % of Al2O3 and TiO2 nanoparticles, ...
