Studies on the Preparation of Polystyrene Thermal Conductivity Composites

Through the use of thermally conductive fillers the thermal properties of polystyrene (PS) are improved significantly. The different fillers include: aluminum oxide (Al2O3), magnesium oxide (MgO), B-silicon carbide particles (B-SiCp),  and  B-silicon carbide whiskers (B-SiCw). The use of PS flakes resulted in higher thermal ...

Preparation and characterization of thermally conductive polystyrene/carbon nanotubes composites

Researchers in this study aimed to develop polymer composites with high thermal conductivity, using polystyrene (PS) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). These composites were prepared by ultrasonic radiation, through a simple-solution-evaporation method. Poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride) (PSMA), with a benzene group and experiencing a strong affinity ...

Towards Thermoconductive, Electrically Insulating Polymeric Composites with Boron Nitride Nanotubes as Fillers

In this experiment, the thermal conductivity of several composites, with varying matrix composition and boron nitride nanotubes fillers, was investigated. Poly(methyl methacrylate), polystyrene, poly(vinyl butyral) and poly(ethylene vinyl alcohol) were the matrix compositions analyzed. The results indicated that with the addition of ...

Thermal conductive PS/graphite composites

Polystyrene (PS)/graphite thermal conductive nano-composites were prepared to verify the high thermal conductivity values with the addition of graphite, as well as the layered structure. The thermal conductivity of PS improved greatly in the presence of the graphite. Researchers used the Maxwell-Eucken model and ...
