A New Class of Opacified Monolithic Aerogels of Ultralow High-Temperature Thermal Conductivities

The main objective of this research project was to create a material with a very low thermal conductivity at high temperatures, for the conservation of energy in high temperature systems. To accomplish this goal, the researchers incorporated carbon nanofibers into the mesoporous network of monolithic ...

Transparent, Hydrophobic Composite Aerogels with High Mechanical Strength and Low High-Temperature Thermal Conductivities

A one step polymer-incorporation sol-gel process coupled with a surface modification and ambient pressure drying process was developed to synthesize silica-poly(vinylpyrrolidone) composites aerogels. The properties that were investigated were: hydrophobicity, mechanical strength and thermal conductivity at high temperatures. The authors envisioned the use of ...

Preparation of Monolithic Silica Aerogel of Low Thermal Conductivity by Ambient Pressure Drying

Monolithic silica aerogels were synthesized with very low thermal conductivity (0.036 W/mK) and high porosity (97%) via ambient pressure drying. This method of drying replaces supercritical drying which is more costly and dangerous. The aerogel was derived from tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and treatment with trimethylchlorosilane. NMR and ...
