Development of a practical photochemical energy storage system. Quarterly report. [Interconversion between norbornadiene and quadricyclene for thermochemical heat storage]
Description: Research on polymer organic sensitizers and polymer inorganic sensitizers for the conversion of norbornadiene to quadricyclene for thermochemical storage of solar heat is described. Also, research on the catalysis of the conversion of quadricyclane to norbornadiene is described. Polymer-anchored cobalt(II) porphyrin catalysts, polymer-anchored palladium(II) phosphine catalysts, and triphenylcyclopropenyl nickel complexes as catalysts were studied, and results are discussed.
