Investigations of sodium acetate trihydrate for solar latent heat storage, controlling the melting point

Abstract

The addition of different acetate salts and acetamide lowers the melting point of sodium acetate trihydrate. Between 0-10% of lithium acetate dihydrate a linear relationship was observed between the melting point and the modal concentration, and the cryoscopic constant of Kf = -6.8°C(±10%) was evaluated. Information on dissociation or dimerization of the various additives could be deduced from the results. The positive properties of sodium acetate trihydrate were retained.
