Improved heat recovery from paraffin-based phase change materials due to the presence of percolating graphene networks

Four different paraffin-based nanocomposite phase change materials (PCMs) were prepared by dispersion of 20 v. % of graphene, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), aluminum, or TiO2 nanoparticles into a paraffin matrix. It was found that the two carbon-based nanoparticles reduced the time required for melting and solidification of the PCM by a greater amount than the two other nanoparticles. The graphene-paraffin PCM was found to reduce the melt and re-solidification time by the ...

Thermal energy storage and release of a new component with PCM for integration in floors for thermal management of buildings

A composite phase change material (PCM) was formulated from commercial blended paraffin and a styrene-butadiene-styrene block. The thermo-physical properties of this composite PCM were then evaluated using the transient plane source method and differential scanning calorimetry. It was determined that there was a significant difference in the thermal conductivity of the PCM in the solid state when compared to that in the liquid state. The second part of this study ...

Effects of MWNTs on phase change enthalpy and thermal conductivity of a solid-liquid organic PCM

In this paper, researchers investigated the effects of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), on the thermal conductivity and phase change enthalpy of palmitic acid (PA), a solid to liquid phase change material. The research concluded that as the concentration of MWNTs is increased, the thermal conductivity of the composite increases, compared to that of PA alone. Also in this study, researchers investigated the effects of various MWNTs surface modifications, on the ...
