Sub-µL measurements of the thermal conductivity and heat capacity of liquids

Posted by Universidade de Santiago de CompostelaResponsive · Research Services and Capabilities · Spain

Summary of the technology

Thermalconductivity (K) and heat capacity (Cp) of a wide variety of liquids obtained from ≈ 0.6 μL samples.
- Organic molecular solvents
- Ionic liquids
- Water–polymer mixtures

Description of the technology


  • Data obtained from very small samples, ≈ 0.6 μL (nanoliters).
  • Thermodynamic characterization of nanofluids(samples are difficult to obtain).
  • Measurements at cryogenic temperatures inside a cryostat (small size helps meeting the requirements of good thermalization).
