Nano-PCMs for passive electronic cooling applications

The authors have carried out an experimental and numerical study on the effects of seeding Al2O3 nanoparticles in a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) on the thermal conductivity and the latent heat of fusion. It was determined that the addition of the nanoparticles (...

Thermal energy storage performance of paraffin-based composite phase change materials filled with hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets

A paraffin-based composite phase change material (PCM) was prepared by the addition of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets to melted paraffin wax followed by vigorous stirring. The nanosheets were added in quantities ranging from 1 to 10 wt. %. A reference sample of pure paraffin was also prepared. ...

A novel phase change material containing mesoporous silica nanoparticles for thermal storage: A study on thermal conductivity and viscosity

A composite PCM was prepared from n-octadecane and mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were added in quantities ranging from 1 wt. % to 5 wt. %, and the thermal conductivity of each composite sample was determined as a function of temperature. The most significant enhancement in thermal conductivity ...

Influence of the Presence and Amount of Metal Nanoparticles on the Thermal and Mechanical Properties of iPP/Soft Paraffin Wax Phase Change Materials for Thermal Energy Storage

Nanocomposite phase change materials (PCMs) were prepared by adding silver nanoparticles to isotactic polypropylene (iPP) and an iPP/paraffin wax phase change materials. The Ag nanoparticles were found to be well dispersed in both iPP and the iPP/wax composite, and filler agglomeration was found ...


Thermal and electrical conductivity enhancement of graphite nanoplatelets on form-stable polyethylene glycol/polymethyl methacrylate composite phase change materials

Graphite nano-platelets (GnPs) were dispersed in polyethylene glycol (PEG)/polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) to form a PEG/PMMA/GnPs composite organic form-stable phase change material. The effects of the incorporation of the GnPs on the morphological, structural, thermal, and electrical properties of the composite were then ...
