Novel cooling material could provide refrigerant alternative

  • marimac 

The traditional refrigerant represented by Freon is a strong greenhouse gas that leads to serious climate implications. Stimulated by the excellent cooling performance of plastic crystal materials, barocaloric (BC) cooling received much attention recently as a promising green refrigeration technology. However, problems like high driving pressure and low thermal response remain unsolved, which hindered their practical applications.Read More »Novel cooling material could provide refrigerant alternative
