[en] Highlights: • A novel highly organic polymer for shape-stabilized phase change materials was developed. • A maximum weight percentage as high as 85% has been achieved without leakage of the melted PEG2000. • The composite PCMs were stable in terms of thermal behavior over 50 melting and cooling cycling. A series of porous triamide-linked polymers labeled as PTP were prepared by condensation of 1,3,5-benzenetricarbonyl trichloride with benzene-1,4-diamine (A), 4,4′-methylenediamine (B) and 1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-triamine (C) respectively. The as-synthesized polymers exhibit permanent porosity and high surface areas which guarantee to hold polyethylene glycol (PEG) molecules in their network for shape-stabilized phase change materials. They possess different effects on the phase change properties of the composite due to their different porosities. PTP-A have intrinsic well-ordered morphology, microstructure and good enough pores to keep the PCMs compared to PTP-B and PTP-C. PEG 2000 used as PCMs could be retained up to 85 wt% in PTP-A polymer materials and these composites were defined as form-stable composite PCMs without the leakage of melted PCM. The thermal study revealed a good storage effect of encapsulated polymer and the enthalpy of melting increases in the order PTP-C [email protected] composite at 85% PEG content presented a greater thermal storage capacity. The latent heats for melting and freezing was found to be 155 and 141.7 kJ/kg with a peak appearing at around 53.13 and 29.67 °C respectively. The study suggests that pore size is important for the preparation of shape-stabilized PCMs.
