Sucrose-based carbon foams with enhanced thermal conductivity

Carbon foams are novelty materials that have a wide range of applications such as radiators, thermal protection, and fire-resistant cores. The main carbon sources of carbon foams are sucrose, coal, coal tar pitch, and petroleum pitch, however the foams that use sucrose as their primary source have low thermal conductivity. This paper examined the thermal properties of carbon foams derived from sucrose but used graphite fillers to improve thermal conductivity. ...

Ultralow cost reticulated carbon foams from household cleaning pad wastes

In this paper, cost efficient RVC foams were fabricated from household cleaning pad waste (CPW) and sucrose. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the RVC foams using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the CPW foams were significantly lower than Ultramet’s RVC foams which are highly insulative. This study proved that it is possible to reproduce low-cost carbon foams from ...
