Abstract

In this research solid-solid microencapsulated phase change material (SSMePCM) with high thermal energy storage density (177.6 Jg/1) was synthesized successfully by in situ polymerization using biodegradable natural polymer chitosan as shell and polyethylene glycol (PEG-1000) as core. The morphology, chemical structure and thermal properties were characterized by optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results show that the obtained SSMePCM dispersed individually with a spherical shape. Author (s) recommends the all set thermal and chemically steady microcapsule for thermal energy storage purposes as novel synthesized SSMePCM with latent heat storage capacities.
