Abstract: An important and time consuming portion of the manufacturing of aerogel insulation is the supercritical carbon dioxide extraction step. An improved understanding of its kinetics is likely to reduce the time and energy required to dry alcogels and thus make aerogel insulation more economically feasible. A supercritical CO2 extraction apparatus was designed, constructed, and characterized.... read more
