Phase change materials (PCM) have been a research interest for many of us due to their wide range of applications and their challenges to meet the requirements set by those applications. Still, many issues remain unsolved and require work, such as encapsulation at nano, micro, and macro scales. Not only development of encapsulated PCM, but also the characterisation of the encapsulated PCM should be studied.
Therefore, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
