Special Issue "Phase Change Materials (PCM)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2016).
Interests: energy storage; food processing; biofuel
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Work on energy storage with phase change has been ongoing for some time but has increased dramatically during the last 10 years, following the establishment of a number of companies worldwide producing varieties of phase change materials, ranging from paraffin and esters to hydrated salts. Significant works have been done on the use of these materials in buildings in a passive or active way showing potential energy saving. The use of PCM is not limited to buildings but also many other applications, including the cooling of electronic devices and batteries.
It is the objective of this Special Issue to publish original works done on the use of PCM in all application.
