Crystallization kinetics behavior of ionic liquid [EMIM][BF4] confined in mesoporous silica matrices

This study focused on the crystallization kinetics behavior of pure ionic liquid (IL) (1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoro borate; EMIMBF4) as well as IL confined in mesoporous silica matrices (termed as ionogel). X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and transient plane source (TPS) measurements have been used to explain ...

Transient plane source (tps) sensors for simultaneous measurements of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of insulators, fluids and conductors

This article describes the design, theory, advantages, and limitations of the TPS technique with a modified bridge. It also describes testing that has been done using the technique on a variety of solid materials from temperatures of 77 K to 1000 K. It was found that at ...

Thermal Conductivity of Alumina and Silica Nanofluids

The effects of particle size/shape, base fluid, and volumetric concentration on the thermal conductivity of nanofluids has been studied. It was found that decreasing the particle size leads to an increased thermal conductivity, and that using water as a base fluid led to the ...


Investigation of transmittance and thermal conductivity properties of silica gels for application as transparent heat insulation materials

In this article the effectiveness of silica aerogels as a transparent heat insulation material (TIM) is studied.  They are a good candidate for this application as the amount of energy that they absorb and emit is adjustable. The effects of different treatments (hydrothermal and firing) ...

Experimental and numerical study of the effective thermal conductivity of nano composites with thermal boundary resistance

Thermal interface resistance results from small gaps and surface geometry mismatches between two materials that make up a composite. Thermal interface resistance is present in most any material that is comprised of two or more components. In the field of thermal interface materials, the majority ...
