Study on effective thermal conductivity of zinc sulphide/poly(methyl methacrylate) nanocomposites

Zinc sulfide nanoparticles were embedded in a poly(methyl methacrylate) matrix to prepare a  nanocomposite polymer with a higher thermal conductivity than the pure polymer. It was determined by TEM that at a low concentration of filler particles, the particles are uniformly dispersed throughout the ...

Influence of CdS Nano Additives on the Thermal Conductivity of Poly(vinyl chloride)/CdS Nanocomposites 

CdS nanoparticles were dispersed in varying quantities into a PVC matrix and the effective thermal conductivities of the produced nanocomposites were investigated at temperatures from 25 to 110C. It was determined that the dispersion of the nanoparticles in PVC caused an increase in thermal conductivity up ...

Enhancement of physical properties of electroactive polyimide nanocomposites by addition of graphene nanosheets

The thermal imidization method was used to prepare an electroactive polyimide/graphene nanocomposite (EPGN) material membrane. It was determined that the composites that were formed had improved mechanical strength, thermal stability, and thermal conductivity, as well as an improved dielectric constant and a decreased gas ...

Filler geometry and interface resistance of carbon nanofibres: Key parameters in thermally conductive polymer composites

The effects of intrinsic thermal conductivity, carbon filler geometry, and interface thermal resistance on the effective thermal conductivity of polymer composites were investigated. It was found that the length of carbon fillers and the interface thermal resistance were the dominant factors in determining the effective ...

A novel phase change material containing mesoporous silica nanoparticles for thermal storage: A study on thermal conductivity and viscosity

A composite PCM was prepared from n-octadecane and mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were added in quantities ranging from 1 wt. % to 5 wt. %, and the thermal conductivity of each composite sample was determined as a function of temperature. The most significant enhancement in thermal conductivity ...
