Abstract: PANI/tetradecanol/MWNTs composites were prepared via in-situ polymerization and analyzed for their use as phase change materials. The MWNTs were randomly dispersed in the composite and it was determined that the PCM was form-stable and that phase separation of the MWNTs and PANI/tetradecanol wouldn't occur.
