Morphology, mechanical, cross-linking, thermal, and tribological properties of nitrile and hydrogenated nitrile rubber/multi-walled carbon nanotubes composites prepared by melt compounding: The effect of acrylonitrile content and hydrogenation

Nanocomposites were prepared by the mixing of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with nitrile and hydrogenated nitrile elastomers (NBR and HNBR). A variety of methods including TEM, SEM, and XRD were used in order to investigate the morphology of the nanocomposites. Many mechanical properties of the nanocomposites were measured and reported. A machine was used to measure the thermal properties of the synthesized nanocomposites....

Alignment of carbon nanotubes comprising magnetically sensitive metal oxides in heat transfer nanofluids

High speed microscopy was used to allow real time visualization of the movement of nanoparticles made up of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) and Fe2O3. An electrostatic force was induced to the nanotube/Fe2O3 composite and caused perfect conjugate structures which result in excellent thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. The alignment of the carbon nanotubes in nanosuspensions may offer new opportunities for the development of nanofluids....

Increased Thermal Conductivity of Eicosane-Based Composite Phase Change Materials in the Presence of Graphene Nanoplatelets

The addition of graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) to a paraffin-based solvent, eicosane was performed at various wt.% and subsequently the synthesized GNP/eicosane composites were analyzed by a variety of machines. The characterization of the GNP/eicosane composites was performed by the TPS technique for the measurement of thermal conductivity from 10°C to 35°C. At a wt.% of 10 GNP filler the composite had a thermal conductivity four times that of unfilled ...

Thermal Conductivity of Carbon Nanofibre-Polypropylene Composite Foams

The present study look at the creation of unfilled and carbon nanofibre (CNF)-filled polypropylene (PP) foams, and their subsequent testing of thermal and mechanical properties. The testing of thermal properties was accomplished by the TPS Technique and determined that when using up to 20 wt.% CNF as filler there was no increase in thermal conductivity of any of the sample foams. Therefore it was decided that it was the foamed ...

Thermal and Rheological Properties of Microencapsulated Phase Change Materials

Microencapsulated phase change materials (MPCMs) are excellent materials for the storage of thermal energy, and through their dispersal into a carrier fluid, microencapsulated phase change slurries (MPCS) can be prepared. These slurries exhibit both excellent thermal energy storage and heat transfer properties. A series of MPCS were prepared for this research and subsequently tested for thermal conductivity and specific heat. Other methods of quantification include DSC, TGA, rheometry, and infrared ...
