Improved thermal conductivity for chemically functionalized exfoliated graphite/epoxy composites
Abstract Chemically functionalized exfoliated graphite-filled epoxy composites were prepared with load levels from 2% to 20% by weight. The viscosities of the composites having load levels >4% byExpand
Preparation of Tunable 3D Pillared Carbon Nanotube–Graphene Networks for High-Performance Capacitance
We have developed a rational strategy for creating the 3D pillared vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VACNT)-graphene architectures by intercalated growth of VACNTs into thermally expanded highlyExpand
Enhancement of through-thickness thermal conductivity in adhesively bonded joints using aligned carbon nanotubes
Abstract A concept of incorporating aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in the adhesive layer has been demonstrated to enhance the through-thickness thermal conductivity in the adhesivelyExpand
Effect of Loading and Surface Modification of MWCNTs on the Fracture Behavior of Epoxy Nanocomposites
Nanocomposites consisting of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and a bifunctional epoxy resin are manufactured by a unique dispersion technique. The effect of loading and surface modification ofExpand
The influence of nanoadhesives on the tensile properties and Mode-I fracture toughness of bonded joints
Nanoadhesives of epoxy resin are synthesized and evaluated. They are organically modified by multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) (1% by weight) as reinforcement. Tensile tests are conducted onExpand
Superior thermal interface via vertically aligned carbon nanotubes grown on graphite foils
Abstract : In an attempt to study the thermal transport at the interface between nanotubes and graphene, vertically aligned multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were grown on graphite thin filmExpand
Covalently bonded three-dimensional carbon nanotube solids via boron induced nanojunctions
The establishment of covalent junctions between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and the modification of their straight tubular morphology are two strategies needed to successfully synthesize nanotube-basedExpand
Importance of interfaces in governing thermal transport in composite materials: modeling and experimental perspectives.
Thermal management in polymeric composite materials has become increasingly critical in the air-vehicle industry because of the increasing thermal load in small-scale composite devices extensivelyExpand
Mechanical properties of intercalated cyanate ester -layered silicate nanocomposites
Abstract Cyanate ester resins are among the most important engineering thermosetting polymers and have received attention because of their outstanding physical properties such as low waterExpand
Improved Flow Rate in Electro-Osmotic Micropumps for Combinations of Substrates and Different Liquids With and Without Nanoparticles
A new design for an electro-osmotic flow (EOF) driven micropump was fabricated. Considering thermal management applications, three different types of micropumps were tested using multiple liquids.Expand
