Synthesis and characterization of silica aerogel and its composite materials

Composite silica aerogels were prepared using sodium silicate and ceramics fibers. The thermal conductivities of these composites were investigated to determine how effective they would be as thermal insulation. As temperature increased to 400oC, the thermal conductivity of these composites only increased from 0.0266 to 0.0572 W/(...

Ambient pressure dried shape-controllable sodium silicate based composite silica aerogel monoliths

The preparation process of silica aerogels has commonly involved a dangerous supercritical drying step, so work has been done to eliminate this step. This paper discusses the preparation of composite silica aerogels containing silica fibers using a method that excludes the supercritical drying step. The ...

Tailoring the structure of cellular vitreous carbon foams

The authors set out to prepare cellular vitreous carbon (CVC) foams with varying thermal and physical properties. This was accomplished by using tannin-based resin modified by different isocyanates in varying amounts. Three different experimental procedures were used to prepare foams with different physical and thermal ...

A New Class of Opacified Monolithic Aerogels of Ultralow High-Temperature Thermal Conductivities

The main objective of this research project was to create a material with a very low thermal conductivity at high temperatures, for the conservation of energy in high temperature systems. To accomplish this goal, the researchers incorporated carbon nanofibers into the mesoporous network of monolithic ...
