Investigation of transmittance and thermal conductivity properties of silica gels for application as transparent heat insulation materials

In this article the effectiveness of silica aerogels as a transparent heat insulation material (TIM) is studied.  They are a good candidate for this application as the amount of energy that they absorb and emit is adjustable. The effects of different treatments (hydrothermal and firing) ...

Sol-gel route to carbon nanotube borosilicate glass composites 

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) combined with inorganic matrices are not structurally sound unlike singular CNTs which have good mechanical performances. Borosilicate glass, commercially known as Pyrex, is durable but has yet to be successfully fabricated using the sol-gel technique. In this paper, the sol-gel technique was ...

Effective thermal conductivity of divided silica xerogel beds

The thermal conductivities of aerogels and xerogels were explored in order to determine how the solid content of each material affected the conductivity. Experimental considerations include testing at room temperature, under vacuum and also under various humidity conditions. Density was taken into account and it ...
