Abstract: 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 was found that the optimal density for the gels was 0.15 g/mL.
