Improving the thermal conductivity and shape-stabilization of phase change materials using nanographite additives

Author(s): , , , , , , ,

Two different sets of phase change materials were made by adding either graphene or exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnP) to paraffin in hot toluene. The thermal and stability properties of these ...
