Title: Study on functional polymer composites based on phase change microcapsules


Phase-change microcapsules have many advantages, such as adjustable temperature, strong energy storage capacity, low price, non-toxicity and no supercooling. Phase change microcapsules have many potential applications such as thermal insulation building material, heat dissipation of electronic devices and infrared stealth coating. We have designed and prepared phase change microcapsules with polymer shells. In the next step, we plan to seek cooperation in the expansion and industrial production of phase change microcapsules and the development and application of new building materials based on phase change microcapsules and other down products.


Prof. Wenbin Yang received his PhD in Sichuan University in 2003. He is currently working in Southwest University of Science and Technology. He is also PI of Design and Preparation for Phase Change Energy Materials of State Key Laboratory of Environment-friendly Energy Materials. Prof. Yang is specialized in design for phase change energy composites and thermal-conductive polymer composites. Prof. Yang has undertaken research by a variety of research councils, and has published about 100 SCI journal papers, including in Small, Applied Energy, et al.

Prof. Xin Wu

Sun Yat-sen University, China



Dr. Xin Wu is an Associate Professor at Sun Yat-Sen University in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering (2010) from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan. Wu received his Ph.D in Materials Science and Engineering from Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Haiyan Zhao. Then Dr. Wu joined CWJRC as a postdoctoral fellow at Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado (2016-2018, Professor Zhenzhen Yu Supervisor), followed by another postdoctoral experience at University of Cincinnati under the supervision of Professor Jing Shi (2019-2020). Wu was appointed to the School of Chemical Engineering and Technology at Sun Yat-Sen University from June 2020 as an Associate Professor.

Current research in the Wu lab emphasizes the use of computational materials approaches (FEM, MD, DFT, etc.) and microstructural characterization techniques (XRD, XPS, SEM, TEM, etc.) to: 1) study residual stress in the weldment under multi-pass condition and the control of residual stress in powder bed-based metal additive manufacturing; 2) determine the influence of residual stress, microstructure and corrosive environment on the corrosion degradation behavior of additively manufactured and welded workpieces; 3) nanowelding/nanojoining of the materials such as graphene, MoS2.
