Tannin-based monoliths from emulsion-templating

Porous monoliths, often referred to as polymerised High Internal Phase Emulsions (polyHIPEs), are materials made of polymers that have applications ranging from chemical engineering to biomedicine. In this paper, a TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of tannin-based monoliths with the transient plane source (TPS) ...

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 ...

Systematic studies of tannin–formaldehyde aerogels: preparation and properties

A variety of tannin-formaldehyde aerogels were produced in order to examine the effects of pH and dilution during their manufacture. The authors produced a phase diagram that could describe them. Extensive physical property characterization was performed on the sample aerogels, including porosity, thermal conductivity, volume ...

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 ...

Green, formaldehyde-free, foams for thermal insulation

This paper presents the idea of flavonoid foams that are manufactured from natural resources rather than formaldehyde-containing tannin-based foams. A TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of the foams using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results show that the flavonoid foams are a better ...
