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...
Reducing thermal contact resistance by a novel elastomeric polyethylene glycol/unsaturated polyester resin/graphene thermal interface materials
Reducing thermal contact resistance (TCR) is an important way to enhance heat dissipation of electronic devices. Elastomer is easy to deform, increase the contact area and reduce the TCR, but its...
Efficient storage and recovery of waste heat by phase change material embedded within additively manufactured grid heat exchangers
The low thermal conductivity of organic phase change materials (PCMs) hinders their usage for energy storage purposes. We demonstrate a compact PCM-based thermal battery that employs...
Preparation and characterization of capric-stearic acid/montmorillonite/graphene composite phase change material for thermal energy storage in buildings
A novel composite phase change material (PCM) of capric-stearic acid/montmorillonite (CA-SA/MMT) with thermal conductivity enhanced by graphene (GR) was prepared. It was characterized by FT-IR, XRD,...
Life cycle inventory and performance analysis of phase change materials for thermal energy storage
