Abstract: 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…
