AbstractThe thermal conductivity of bulk, self-supporting boron nitride nanotube (BNNT) sheets composed of nominally 100% BNNTs oriented randomly in-plane was measured by a steady-state, parallel thermal conductance method. The sheets were either collected directly during synthesis or produced by dispersion and filtration. Differences between the effective thermal conductivities of filtration-produced BNNT buckypaper (∼1.5 W m−1 K−1) and lower-density as-synthesized sheets (∼0.75 W m−1 K−1), which are both porous materials, were primarily due to their density. The measured results indicate similar thermal conductivity, in the range of 7–12 W m−1 K−1, for the BNNT network in these sheets. High BNNT-content composites (∼30 wt.% BNNTs) produced by epoxy impregnation of the porous BNNT network gave 2–3 W m−1 K−1, more than 10× the baseline epoxy. The combination of manufacturability, thermal conductivity, and electrical insulation offers exciting potential for electrically insulating, thermally conductive coatings and packaging. Thermal conductivity of free-standing BNNT buckypaper, buckypaper composites, and related materials at room temperature.
