Effect of Graphene Layer Thickness and Mechanical Compliance on Interfacial Heat Flow and Thermal Conduction in Solid–Liquid Phase Change Materials

The thermal conductivities of paraffin-based composite phase change materials (PCMs) containing different types of graphene nanoparticles were determined using the transient plane source method. It was determined that the thermal conductivity was increased by the addition of the nanoparticles, and the enhancement was greater for ...

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 ...

Effect of carbon nanotube interfacial geometry on thermal transport in solid–liquid phase change materials

The thermal conductivities of four composite paraffin phase change materials (PCMs) containing embedded multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with varying dimensions were determined. The goals of this study were to investigate the interfacial thermal resistance between two MWCNTs, and to investigate the ballistic and diffusive components ...

Graphene-Enhanced Phase Change Materials for Thermal Management of Battery Packs

The potential of graphene and few-layer graphene to be used as fillers in a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) was evaluated. The goal was to prepare a composite PCM with a higher thermal conductivity than the pure paraffin wax. The ability of the composite ...

High-electrical-resistivity thermally-conductive phase change materials prepared by adding nanographitic fillers into paraffin

Pristine and modified exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnPs and M-xGnPs, respectively) were dispersed into a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) in an effort to raise the thermal conductivity of the PCM. The addition of pure xGnPs would decrease the electrical resistivity of the composite PCM, ...
