Influence of the Presence and Amount of Metal Nanoparticles on the Thermal and Mechanical Properties of iPP/Soft Paraffin Wax Phase Change Materials for Thermal Energy Storage
Author(s): Mamohanoe Patricia Molaba
Nanocomposite phase change materials (PCMs) were prepared by adding silver nanoparticles to isotactic polypropylene (iPP) and an iPP/paraffin wax phase change materials. The Ag nanoparticles were found to be ...
