ABSTRACT

It was tried to microencapsulate erythritol as a phase change material with the interfacial polycondensation reaction method by using the (W/O) emulsion and to characterize the microcapsules prepared. In the experiment, toluene diisocyanate, diphenyl methane diisocyanate and hexamethylenediisocyanate were used to form the polyurethane shell and the effects of them on the heat storage density and the microencapsulation efficiency were investigated. Furthermore, the effect of supercooling prevention agent on the phase change behavior of erythritol was investigated. The microcapsules prepared with toluendiisocyanate monomer showed the highest heat storage density and the higher microencapsulation efficiency. Considerable supercooling phenomenon in the microcapsule was observed and prevented to a certain degree by addition of potassium dihydrogen phosphate and calcium sulfate as the supercooling prevention agent.
