Monodisperse Hollow Silica Nanospheres for Nano Insulation Materials: Synthesis, Characterization, and Life Cycle Assessment

This article reported on the synthesis, characterization, life cycle assessment (LCA) of nano insulation materials (NIMs) that are made of hollow silica nanospheres (HSNSs). The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to determine the thermal properties of the HSNSs. The thermal conductivity of the ...

Mechanical and thermal performance of concrete and mortar cellular materials containing plastic waste

The expanding production of polymeric materials is causing plastic waste to become a growing concern. This study aimed to fabricate cement and mortar composites that contained plastic in an attempt to extend the life of non-reusable plastics. The thermal conductivity of the composite material was ...

Effect of the thermal treatment on microstructure and physical properties of low-density and high transparency silica aerogels via acetonitrile supercritical drying

Silica aerogels have extremely low thermal conductivities, potentially making them effective thermal insulators. In this study, the thermal conductivities of various samples were explored using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) Method. Samples of the silica aerogels were approximately 1.3 cm thick and between 4.1-4.3 cm in ...

Flame Retardant, Heat Insulating Cellulose Aerogels from Waste Cotton Fabrics by in Situ Formation of Magnesium Hydroxide Nanoparticles in Cellulose Gel Nanostructures

Aerogels are promising thermal insulators because of their low thermal conductivity, durability and eco-friendly nature. However, aerogels become a problem because of their highly flammable properties. In this study, flame retardant cellulose insulators were formed from scrap pieces of cotton. Firstly, an NaOH/Urea solution ...
