In this study, Microencapsulated phase change material (MicroPCM) was successfully synthesized by emulsion polymerization method, using magnesium sulfate heptahydrate (MSH) as core material and urea resin (UR) as shell material. The surface morphology of the MicroPCM was tested by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and optical microscope (OM). The thermal property and particle size were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and laser particle size analyzer (LPA), respectively. The chemical structure of microcapsule was analyzed by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
