Aerogels-The Future

Authors(4) :-Vishnu Chidambaran, Vivek Praveen, Visakh Praveen, Rohith. S. Menon

Aerogels are synthetic porous ultra-light materials derived from a gel, in which the liquid component of the gel is replaced with a gas. Aerogels exhibit an uncanny array of extreme material properties. Most notably aerogels are known for their extreme low densities. The potential to replace conventional insulation by aerogel in various sectors like building, construction as well as in industrial insulation is quite significant. The main purpose of the paper is to describe the application of aerogel in catalytic converters in automobiles and their economical aspects.
