Effect of the thermal treatment on microstructure and physical properties of low-density and high transparency silica aerogels via acetonitrile supercritical drying

Silica aerogels have extremely low thermal conductivities, potentially making them effective thermal insulators. In this study, the thermal conductivities of various samples were explored using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) Method. Samples of the silica aerogels were approximately 1.3 cm thick and between 4.1-4.3 cm in ...

Influence of thermal process on microstructural and physical properties of ambient pressure dried hydrophobic silica aerogel monoliths

Ambient pressure dried hydrophobic silica aerogel monoliths were prepared via simultaneous solvent exchange and surface modification in order to minimize volume shrinkage and density. At room temperature, the obtained silica aerogels had a low density of 0.096 g/cm3, a high surface area and hydrophobicity, and ...

Preparation and Characterization of Ultralow Density Silica Aerogels by Acetonitrile Supercritical Drying

Ultralow density silica aerogels were formulated by sol-gel process using tetramethyl orthosilicate as the precursor. A supercritical drying step was performed using acetonitrile solvent extraction. These aerogels were found to have a high specific surface area (~812m2/g) and they were found to be excellent ...

One-pot synthesis, characterization and properties of acid-catalyzed resorcinol/formaldehyde cross-linked silica aerogels and their conversion to hierarchical porous carbon monoliths

Aerogels are ultra-light, insulative, porous materials that have a wide variety of applications. The aim of this study was to synthesize resorcinol/formaldehyde (RF) cross-linked silica aerogels in one pot by acid catalysis. A thermal constant analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the RF/SiO2 ...

Preparation and characterization of ultralow density silica aerogels by acetonitrile supercritical drying

In this study, ultralow density silica aerogels were synthesized and their thermal conductivities were tested to determine how supercritical drying affected the samples. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the silica aerogels using the transient plane source (TPS) method which determined that the ...
