Abstract

High thermal and hygric mass material can suppress temperature and relative humidity variation, which have been widely used for indoor hygrothermal control. Here, A novel of hygrothermal control materials were prepared by simple grinding microencapsulated phase change material (MicroPCM) and metal-organic framework (MOF). Hygrothermal properties of the MOF/MicroPCM composites were measured by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and dynamic vapor sorption (DVS) methods. A building model in which the envelope contains MOF/MicroPCM composites was established using WUFI Plus V.3.2. The influence of the MOF/MicroPCM composites on indoor air was studied in a typical summer. Numerical results demonstrate that MOF/MicroPCM composites used as an innovative passive material show great potential for indoor hygrothermal control.
