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… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
