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

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 well dispersed in both iPP and the iPP/wax composite, and filler agglomeration was found to increase with increasing filler content. The nanoparticles did not significantly affect the modulus of the iPP on its own, but when Ag and paraffin ...
