Abstract

A new integral form of equation of state (IFEOS) for volume thermal expansion has been established and used to study the volume thermal expansion of nanomaterials under the effect of temperature. A wide variety of nanomaterials such as fullerene (C60), 20 nm-Ni, 15 nm-(80Ni+20Fe), n-ZnO, n-TiO2 and n-NiO has been considered to analyze the effect of temperature on them. The results obtained have been compared with available experimental data as well as other theoretical approaches. Excellent agreement between theory and available experimental data supports the validity of newly established integral form of equation of state (IFEOS) for nanomaterials.
