... temperature and latent heat were 36.2 °C and 201.5 J/g, respectively. The supercooling degree of the modified DHPD was no more than 2 °C, showing its excellent thermal stability in the accelerated thermal cycle experiments. Figure 5 shows the crystallization of DHPD-SA composite. As the mass fraction...

... of the art. Both improvements require a new heat transfer fluid that must have a very low vapor pressure at the hot operating temperature and combined with a high thermal stability, higher than 450 ° C . Further, the piping layout of trough plants dictates that the fluid not be allowed to freeze, which...
