Prepartion of Organophilic Bentonite / Paraffin Composite Phase Change Energy Storage Material with Melting Intercalation Method
Organophilic Bentonite / Paraffin composite phase change energy storage materials (OB/P PCM composite) were prepared by melting intercalation method. Under high temperature, no melt paraffin seep out from the PCM of organophilic bentonite/paraffin (OB/P) mass ratio is 2:1, which paraffin content is largest. Samples were tested by X ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Paraffin was well intercalated into layerd bentonite. Melting point and fussion heat of composite PCM with mass ratio2:1 are 45.7 °C and 68.7 kJ/kg, it can be added to solar energy.
