In this paper, the thermal behaviors of expanded graphite(EG)/erythritol composites with different contents of EG were studied. The surface and structure properties of the composites were determined by using scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD), respectively. The thermal properties were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermal conductivity (TC). As experimental results, the thermal conductivity of the composites increased with increasing the EG content. However, the latent heat was somewhat decreased in the presence of EG. We could concluded that EG was highly promising materials for improving the heat transfer enhancement and energy storage capacity of phase change materials (PCMs). © 2014 Korean Society of Industrial Engineering Chemistry.
