Phase Change Materials Report by Material, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023 is a professional and comprehensive research report on the world's major regional market conditions, focusing on the main regions (North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific) and the main countries (United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea and China).
The thermal performance of UV-cured hybrid micro-PCMs depend on the phase change temperature, the amount of PCM that is microencapsulated, and the amount of energy it absorbs or releases during a phase change [28, 29].
Below, we present two experimentally attainable possibilities influencing the phase change temperature of NLC: the presence of an external electric field and NPs.
The melting process of the PEG in the composite is confined by a physically crosslinked structure with temporary junctions above [T.sub.m] of the PEG, which inhibits the phase change of form-stabilized solid phase into liquid phase.

Phase change heat transfer is a broad field that finds applications in various engineering disciplines like in the making of ice, the freezing of food, the solidification of metals and alloy, thermal energy storage, cryosurgery and cryopreservation.
In this paper we have introduced a new concept of multifunctional absorber (carbon nanotube sheets) with inner layers of heat accumulator (phase change materials microspheres) and heat transfer layer by nanopaticles.
