Keywords:thermal storage materials, capric acid, myrisic acid, phase change kinetic
In the present study, capric acid and myrisic acid were first selected to prepare a capric acid-myrisic acid eutectic mixture using a compounding method. Then, the thermal properties, structural stability and weight loss of capric acid-myrisic acid eutectic mixtures were analyzed using differential scanning calorimetry, Fourier transform infrared and thermogravimetry. Finally, the activation energy and reaction order of the capric acid-myrisic acid eutectic mixture during solid-liquid transformation were calculated using the phase change kinetic methods of Kissinger and Ozawa. The results indicate that capric acid-myrisic acid eutectic mixtures have good thermal cycle stability and stable energy storage in practical applications. The activation energies of capric acid-myrisic acid eutectic mixtures were calculated using the phase change kinetic methods of Kissinger and Ozawa, with values of 345.6 KJ/mol and 333.3 KJ/mol, respectively, indicating that both phase change kinetic methods have good accuracy.
