Symmetrical Fatty Dialkyl Carbonates as Potential Green Phase Change Materials: Synthesis and Characterisation
- 9 Downloads
Symmetrical fatty dialkyl carbonates make a group of chemicals that has great potential for applications as phase change materials (PCMs). In this study, various parameters affecting synthesis of these carbonates are studied on laboratory scale, which includes: reactants ratio, reaction temperature and time, and the amount of catalyst used. Structures of the desired products are identified using FTIR and NMR spectroscopy. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis is used for determining potential of the synthesized symmetrical fatty dialkyl carbonates as PCMs for energy-saving applications.
