Effects of Impurity Content on the Sintering Characteristics of Plasma-Sprayed Zirconia

Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) powders containing varying amounts of SiO2 and Al2O3 impurities were plasma sprayed onto metallic substrates and subsequently investigated. The authors were interested in how the impurities affected sintering rates, thermal conductivity, linear contraction, and pore size and architecture among other things. The YSZ coatings were heat treated at 1400°C for 10 hours and then analyzed for the properties mentioned above. A machine was used to measure the ...

Ultrathin BN nanosheets with zigzag edge: one-step chemical synthesis, applications in wastewater treatment and preparation of highly thermal-conductive BN-polymer composites

Ultrathin boron nitride nanosheets (BNNSs) were prepared at 300°C by a new variable-pressure one-step synthesis. An increase in pressure during the synthesis results in a decreased thickness for the nanosheets, which were all triangular in shape with zig-zag edges. The synthesized nanosheets exhibit high adsorption capacities for the organic dye methylene blue (MB). In addition to these properties, the BN nanosheets can be used as excellent thermal-conducting additives in BN-polymer ...

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 ...

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 aerogels, with up to a 20 wt.% through an accelerated-gelation sol-gel process. The synthesis process also involved the use of supercritical drying of the aerogels to ...
