Preparation and Characterization of Ultralow Density Silica Aerogels by Acetonitrile Supercritical Drying

Ultralow density silica aerogels were formulated by sol-gel process using tetramethyl orthosilicate as the precursor. A supercritical drying step was performed using acetonitrile solvent extraction. These aerogels were found to have a high specific surface area (~812m2/g) and they were found to be excellent ...

Preparation of silica aerogel/polyurethane composites for the application of thermal insulation

The authors prepared silica aerogel/polyurethane composites by two different methods for the comparison of the two methods. The objective was to study the thermal insulation and hydrophobic properties of the composites to evaluate their potential for use as fabric membranes. It was found that ...

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 ...

Effect of mixing on thermal and mechanical properties of aerogel-PVB composites

In this paper silica aerogels were synthesized using solvent exchange and surface modification of wet gels from waterglass using IPA/TMCS/n-Hexane solution. The densities, porosities, and specific surface areas were measured. Three different mixing methods were employed to determine their effect on the thermal ...
