    Abstract

    This paper reviews the development and application of energy saving latent heat storage phase change materials (PCMs) and environmental friendly humidity-controlled materials for indoor thermal management and humidity control. Based on the studies reported in the literatures, we indicated that the super-efficient and innovative micro-encapsulated form-stable composite PCM and humidity-controlled materials with high moisture absorption and desorption capacity and intelligent self-humidity-control and related key techniques are worth to be expected.
