Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers: Thermophysical and Thermochemical Studies of Benzyl- and Dibenzyl-toluene Derivatives

Abstract The heat transfer oils dibenzyltoluene and benzyltoluene are promising materials as a new class of liquid organic hydrogen carrier compounds (LOHC). Thermophysical properties (heat capacity, density, viscosity, and surface tension) of the commercially available thermofluids Marlothem LH (benzyltoluene) and Marlotherm SH (dibenzyltoluene) and their completely hydrogenated derivatives were measured. Thermochemical properties (enthalpies of combustion [...]

Energy storage in residential and commercial buildings via Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC)

Abstract This contribution proposes the usage of Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) for the establishment of a decentralised energy storage network. Due to the continually increasing amount of renewable energy within the power grid, in particular in countries of the European Union, a huge demand for storage capacities develops that can hardly be met by [...]
