In 2002 Aspen Aerogel, a company created by Nasa, produced a stronger and more flexible version of the gel.
Although aerogel is classed as a solid, 99% of the substance is made up of gas, which gives it a cloudy appearance.
With nanometer pore structure, nanometer-porous materials silica aerogel have an excellent property in thermal insulation.
Supersonic technique was introduced into synthetic route of resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) aerogel to shorten the fabrication period.
The latex particles produced very short tracks in the aerogel, which was not a surprise.
Upon pyrolysis of organic aerogel powder at high temperature, the carbonized aerogel can be obtained.
We are cautiously optimistic that the tilting and distortion of the aerogel were minimal.
Here is an example of a fragment of aerogel sitting on the surface of the aerogel.
Carbon aerogels are new kinds of mesoporous materials with many peculiar properties.
The high porosity of aerogels makes them have many unique properties.
