Description: Experimental studies have validated three classes of thermochemical cycles (Bismuth sulfate-sulfuric acid, magnesium sulfate-magnesium iodide, and oxide-based) based on high temperature solids decomposition as an endothermic step. Such cycles offer the possibility of high efficiency when coupled with high temperature isothermal heat sources. Methods for handling solids in high temperature decomposition reactions have been tested. The results suggest that efficient and practical cycles can be based on such reactions.
