In order to obtain stable latent functionally thermal fluids for heat transfer and heat storage, microencapsulated phase change material (MPCM) suspensions with binary propanol-water mixtures of different proportions as base fluid were formulated. The stability study finds the binary propanol-water mixtures, after having stood for 48 hr, with a density of 941 kg/m 3 exhibit the best stability. The morphology and thermophysical properties of the 10-40 wt.% MPCM suspensions, such as diameter distribution, laten…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
