Transparent, robust, and machinable hybrid silica aerogel with a “rigid-flexible” combined structure for thermal insulation, oil/water separation, and self-cleaning
Silica aerogel has many attractive properties, but poor mechanical properties severely limit its practical applications. Many reinforcement strategies have been implemented, however, most of which...
Developing flame-retardant lignocellulosic nanofibrils through reactive deep eutectic solvent treatment for thermal insulation
Abstract: The global consensus to pivot to a more sustainable lifestyle and achieve greater atom economy calls for not only sourcing advanced functional materials from biomass but also accomplishing...
Improvement of Window Thermal Performance Using Areogel Insulation Film for Building Energy Saving
Abstract: In buildings, windows have a major influence on space heating demand and indoor environment both with respect to climate and daylight. To reduce the window coefficient of the overall heat...
Solar-thermal energy conversion and storage of super black carbon reinforced melamine foam aerogel for shape-stable phase change composites
Abstract Thermal energy harvesting and storage with phase change materials (PCMs) have attracted extensive exploration in solar-thermal utilization. Solving leakage issue of PCMs and improving the...
Tightly-packed fluorinated graphene aerogel/polydimethylsiloxane composite with excellent thermal management properties
Abstract: Although graphene-based composites have been considered desirable candidates for thermal management applications, their poor electrical insulation restricts their further use in electrical...
Green Fabrication of Multi-functional Aerogel Composite from Fly Ash and Recycled Plastic Fibers for Heat and Sound Insulation
Fly ash (FA), an abundant waste from thermal power plants in Vietnam, has been recycled 100 % into multifunctional aerogel composites for heat and sound insulation by the green fabrication developed...
Fabrication of cellulose-based aerogel for thermal and acoustic insulation applications
A method to prepare aerogels from rice straw and polyvinyl alcohol in the presence of fiberglass and glutaraldehyde is herein reported. The morphology, pore structure and physical properties of the...
Green Fabrication of Bio-based Aerogels from Coconut Coir for Heat Insulation and Oil Removal
Each year, the global annual production of coconut fibre (CF) is around 350×103 t, while they are utilized for fine art, fertilization, and animal feed. However, there have not seen many engineering...
Comparative Analysis of High Performance Thermal Insulation Materials
Abstract: The aim of the study is to do comparative study of insulation materials coated with aerogel against other available insulation materials and also test the efficacy of the custom built...
