Researchers at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst have developed a new non-traditional type of material that is extremely powerful in storing and dissipating heat, perhaps Used as a battery material.

The plastic-like polymer looks like AzoPMA, which has 100 times the thermal capacity of water. If further development of the material, the future or will be used for the production of thermal batteries, which can be used to store solar energy, and its use in smart phones and electric cars.

The AzoPMA materials research team led by Dhandapani Venkataraman, a professor of chemistry at the University of Massachusetts, uses the acronym "azobenzene-based poly (methacrylate) composition" in its English name.

AzoPMA can also store a lot of heat, to achieve the switch between the two structures or appearance, depending on their thermal energy may be. When the material is heated, its molecular structure will be converted to a high-energy form, helping to efficiently store heat. When the material cools, it switches to a low-energy form and radiates heat if necessary.

AzoPMA materials may also be used as non-combustible materials in solar-thermal ovens to reduce the risk of human body damage from boiler flue gases in rural areas. In addition, the material can be used as a large battery. It is worth mentioning that if the material is shredded and placed in the snow, it will help to melt the ice and snow without using electrical equipment.
