Reduction of shrinkage and brittleness for resorcinol-formaldehyde aerogels by means of a pH-controlled sol-gel process 

This article investigates how the thermal conductivity of a resorcinol-formaldehyde aerogels varies with increasing resorcinol (R) to water (W) ratios. The thermal conductivity was measured using a transient plane source (TPS) method. As the R:W increases so does the thermal conductivity, this is because ...

Preparation and characterization of ultralow density silica aerogels by acetonitrile supercritical drying

In this study, ultralow density silica aerogels were synthesized and their thermal conductivities were tested to determine how supercritical drying affected the samples. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the silica aerogels using the transient plane source (TPS) method which determined that the ...

Thermal behaviour of sol-gel derived phosphate ceramics

Phosphosilicate ceramics with varying compositions were synthesized through the sol-gel process and the thermal conductivity of the samples was measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of phosphosilicate ceramic powder was low, but increased slightly with phosphorous concentration. ...

Sol-gel route to carbon nanotube borosilicate glass composites 

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) combined with inorganic matrices are not structurally sound unlike singular CNTs which have good mechanical performances. Borosilicate glass, commercially known as Pyrex, is durable but has yet to be successfully fabricated using the sol-gel technique. In this paper, the sol-gel technique was ...
