Thermal performance enhancement of palmitic-stearic acid by adding graphene nanoplatelets and expanded graphite for thermal energy storage: A comparative study

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, ...

A capric–palmitic–stearic acid ternary eutectic mixture/expanded graphite composite phase change material for thermal energy storage

This study suggested the use of capric acid–palmitic acid–stearic acid ternary eutectic mixture/expanded graphite (CA–PA–SA/EG) composite phase change material (PCM), as a low-temperature heat storage material. With a mass ratio of CA:PA:SA = 79.3 : 14.7 : 6.0, the mixture was prepared and ...

A newly composed paraffin encapsulated prototype roof structure for efficient thermal management in hot climate

This study highlights the ongoing search for sustainable and thermally suitable phase-change materials (PCMs), for hot weather building climates, such as Iraq. This new PCM must have an extraordinary heat and cold retention ability. Building industries are interested in using paraffin’s in their roofing ...

Preparation and thermal properties of porous heterogeneous composite phase change materials based on molten salts/expanded graphite

This article discussed the creation of phase change composite materials using molten binary salts and expanded graphite (EG). Three different salts were used, LiNO3–KCl, LiNO3–NaNO3 and LiNO3–NaCl. The amount of salt in the composites varied between 77.8% and 81.5%. The thermal conductivity of the ...

Thermal Characterization of Lauric–Stearic Acid/Expanded Graphite Eutectic Mixture as Phase Change Materials

Expanded graphite (EG) was added to lauric acid (LA)-stearic acid (SA) phase change materials to enhance their thermal conductivities. The PCMs were prepared in varying mass fractions of LA and SA, and 10 wt. % of EG was added. The phase change temperature and phase change ...
