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....

Influence of pH on Nanofluids’ Viscosity and Thermal Conductivity

The authors used the transient plane source (TPS) technique to investigate the effect of pH on nanofluid thermal conductivity and viscosity. Cu and Al2O3 nanoparticles were dispersed in water to create two nanofluids. pH was then varied and thermal conductivity and viscosity measurements were made on the nanofluids. An optimal pH was found to give the lowest viscosity and highest thermal conductivity, and a significant improvement in thermal ...

Analysis of factors influencing thermal conductivity and viscosity in different kinds of surfactant solutions

Surfactants are often used in nanofluids to help improve dispersion and prevent aggregation of the resident nanoparticles. In this study, the researchers used the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure the thermal conductivity of a variety of nanofluids with different surfactants of varying concentrations, at different temperatures and pH values. For surfactants, thermal conductivity stabilizes after the addition of a certain concentration of that surfactant. Strongly acidic and alkaline ...

Thermal Conductivity Enhancement for Aqueous Alumina Nano-Suspensions in the Presence of Surfactant

A series of Al2O3-water nanofluids were synthesized and their thermal conductivities were evaluated under different pH values and concentrations of surfactant (SDBS) using the Thermal Constants Analyzer. All the properties studied were found to have a strong effect on the measured thermal conductivity. By using the procedure listed in the report, the thermal conductivity of Al2O3-water nanofluids can be increased by 10% with the use of only 0.0015 ...

Study on dispersion behavior and thermal conductivity of Cu-H2O nanofluids

The addition of Cu nanoparticles to water was studied at different pH values and different dispersant concentrations by the measurement of zeta potential and absorbency. Thermal conductivity was measured. It was found that the ideal properties of the nanofluid were obtained at pH 9.5....
