Abstract: Ordered mesoporous silica (MPS) is expected to be used as an adsorbent for energy-efficient desiccant cooling systems. For practical use, it is important to be able to fabricate thick MPS coatings on metal supports. As we reported previously, MPS coatings on metal substrates can be formed using the electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method. Since MPS adsorbs a certain amount of water depending on the relative humidity, the amount of water adsorbed in MPS influences electrification, dispersion stability, and EPD…
