Sucrose-based carbon foams with enhanced thermal conductivity

Carbon foams are novelty materials that have a wide range of applications such as radiators, thermal protection, and fire-resistant cores. The main carbon sources of carbon foams are sucrose, coal, coal tar pitch, and petroleum pitch, however the foams that use sucrose as their primary source have low thermal conductivity. This paper examined the thermal properties of carbon foams derived from sucrose but used graphite fillers to improve thermal conductivity. ...

In-situ synthesis and attachment of colloidal ZnO nanoparticles inside porous carbon structures 

This study investigates the properties of a material to be used as an energy storage medium that can use energy stored from the summer months, and then release it during the winter. The proposed material uses a graphite foam, with ZnO coatings with a flower like morphology, to house a sugar alcohol phase change material (PCM). The thermal conductivity of the material was measured using a transient plane source (TPS) ...
