Article Preview

Microencapsulated n-octadecane (MicroC18) and doped with thermochromatic powders (TC-MicroC18) were prepared with melamine-formaldehyde (M-F) resin as the wall via in-situ polymerization. The chemical structure and thermal behavior of microcapsules were investigated using fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Experimental results show that 63 wt% n-C18 has been incorporated into microcapsules, and the obvious thermochromatic effect of TC-MicroC18 is displayed with temperature changing. The structure-properties of TC-MicroC18 also is discussed in detail from the aspect of molecular structure.
