Preparation of silica microspheres encapsulating phase-change material by sol-gel method in O/W emulsion.

Abstract

Spherical silica microcapsules containing phase-change material (PCM) were prepared by the sol-gel method in O/W emulsion. This is the first time that inorganic encapsulation of PCM with core/shell structure has been studied. The results of this synthesis revealed that micron size (4 - 8 microm) silica microspheres encapsulating n-pentadecane can be… (More)
