Modeling of Ethanol-Silica Alcogel Drying Using Supercritical Carbon Dioxide

Griffin, Justin Scott
2010

An important and time consuming step in aerogel production is supercritical drying. Improved understanding of the process is necessary to accelerate aerogel production and thus make aerogels more economically feasible and their use more widespread. A model has been formulated which analyzes transport of supercritical carbon dioxide and ethanol within a single pore of silica aerogel during drying... read more
