Analysis of Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting with Graphene Aerogel-Supported Form-Stable Phase Change Materials
Graphene aerogel-supported phase change material (PCM) composites sustain the initial solid state without any leakage problem when they are melted. The high portion of pure PCM in the composite can...
Enhancement in thermo-electric energy harvesting efficiency by embedding PDMS in form-stable PCM composites
Graphene aerogel is widely utilized as a supporting material for latent heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) applications, since the three-dimensional (3D) interconnected structure can hold the...
Modular aerogel brick fabrication via 3D-printed molds
A 3D-printing process is presented for the manufacturing of modular aerogel/acrylate bricks that are fully scalable and customizable for potential applications in thermal insulation. The use of...
Lignocellulosic building blocks for aerogel and nanocomposite applications
Each new dawn is marking our success in the field of science and technology, fortifying our knowledge, but at the same time risks associated with the plethora of environmental challenges in the form...
Functional Nanocellulose Aerogels for Varying Technological Applications
Nanocellulose is a renewable and biocompatible nanomaterial with a high strength, low density, and tunable surface chemistry. Since a lot of hydroxyl groups are present on the surface of the...
Thermal insulation and hydrophobization of wood impregnated with silica aerogel powder
The aim of the study was to develop a simple and cost-effective method to improve thermal insulation and hydrophobicity of wood. Herein, we attempted to use commercially available silica aerogel...
Chemical Retreating for Gel-typed Aerogel and Insulation Performance of Cement Containing Aerogel
This research identified the possibility of application as an insulation building material by mixing aerogels with the cement paste as well as their thermal performance. The aerogel is a very stable...
Effect of various curing methods and addition of silica aerogel on mortar properties
Mechanical and thermal properties and porosity of aerogel-incorporated mortars exposed to various curing conditions (curing by wetting-drying, curing by magnesium sulphate (MgSO4), and water curing)...
Cellulose Aerogels Prepared From Rice Straw
Cellulose aerogels are green, ultralight and highly porous materials which are promising alternatives to common thermal insulation materials. In this study, cellulose aerogels were prepared from rice...
