Reduced Graphene Oxide Composite Nanowood for Solar-Driven Interfacial Evaporation and Electricity Generation
Abstract: Solar-driven interfacial evaporation (SDIE) is considered one of the most promising technological approaches to solve the freshwater shortages. Based on renewable wood, we fabricated the...
Cellulose and Protein Aerogels for Oil Spill Cleaning
Abstract: Both the fabrication methods and properties of cellulose aerogels and silica–cellulose aerogels are discussed in detail. A combination of an aerogel structure and recycled cellulose...
Polymer-Encapsulated Aerogel Fibers Prepared via Coaxial Wet Spinning with Stepwise Coagulation for Thermal Insulation
Abstract: Polymer-encapsulated aerogel fibers with high porosity, low density, and good mechanical properties are promising candidates for thermal insulation materials. However, the fabrication of...
Highly Robust and Hydrophobic Aerogel Beads with Dandelion-like Structure for Water Treatment
Abstract: Nowadays the human living environment faces grave challenges raised by a series of environmental issues, including water pollution and the greenhouse effect. These crises call for the...
Insulative wood materials templated by wet foams
Abstract: Insulative materials are lightweight structures that prevent heat transfer. Plastic foams and vitreous wools are the main materials currently used for insulation in construction, although...
Development of Rigid Polyurethane Foams Based on Kraft Lignin Polyol Obtained by Oxyalkylation Using Propylene Carbonate
Abstract: This study aimed to develop new rigid polyurethane foams (RPUFs) for thermal insulation based on kraft lignin, the main by-product of the pulp and paper industry. Crude lignin-based polyol...
A novel eco-friendly foaming technique for developing sustainable glass foams from the waste glass
Abstract: The complex waste glass (WG) coming from the automotive vehicle industry has very low recycling potential and goes mainly to landfills. This research aims to develop a sustainable and...
Durable thermal fluid super-repellency of elastic fluorine-modified SiO2@sponge composite aerogel
Abstract: Elastic aerogel materials have significant potential to enduringly perform thermal management in the air. However, it is still an important challenge to directly and durably endure thermal...
Study on the thermal conductivity and density of foam glass
Abstract: This paper focuses on the relationship between the composition of foam glass and its thermal conductivity and density. In this experimental research, three levels of glass particle size and...
