Abstract: Zeolites are highly insulative, porous minerals. Due to their insulating nature, heat transfer and therefore thermal conductivity is greatly impacted. With the help of a transient plane source (TPS) thermal constants analyzer, researchers tested the ability of zeolites to conduct heat when containing thermally conductive additives. This research mainly focused on metallic, ceramic and carbonaceous additives. The research conducted has shed light on the design of new porous composites experiencing enhanced heat-transfer properties.
