Monodisperse Hollow Silica Nanospheres for Nano Insulation Materials: Synthesis, Characterization, and Life Cycle Assessment

This article reported on the synthesis, characterization, life cycle assessment (LCA) of nano insulation materials (NIMs) that are made of hollow silica nanospheres (HSNSs). The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to determine the thermal properties of the HSNSs. The thermal conductivity of the ...

Monodisperse Hollow Silica Nanospheres for Nano Insulation Materials: Synthesis, Characterization, and Life Cycle Assessment

The authors present the synthesis of hollow silica nanospheres (HSNSs) by a template-assisted approach using polystyrene nanospheres as templates. These nanospheres could potentially be used as nano insulation materials due to their low thermal conductivity ~0.02 W/m K. The authors also examined the environmental footprint ...

Thermal Conductivity of TiO2 Nanotubes

The authors present a method of preparation of TiO2 nanotubes by alkaline treatment (with NaOH) of TiO2 particles followed by acid-washing and annealing treatment. Theoretical and experimental studies on the thermal conductivity of TiO2 nanotubes is also presented. The thermal conductivity values determined experimentally matched ...

Synthesis of hollow silica nanospheres by sacrificial polystyrene templates for thermal insulation applications

In this paper, researchers synthesized monodispersed polystyrene spheres (PS), of a desired size. Generally, PS have a typical diameter ranging from 180 nm to 900 nm. However, the researchers in this study were able to reduce the sphere size, by increasing the polyvinylpyrolidone/styrene weight ratio. The ...
