Measurement of thermophysical properties of ammonium salts in the solid and molten states

The thermal conductivity, specific heat capacity and thermal diffusivity of solid and molten ammonium thiocyanate, ammonium formate, ammonium acetate and ammonium nitrate were measured in the temperature range 80–190‡C, including the solid and liquid phases, by using the AC-heated strip (wire) technique. The results indicate that the thermal conductivities depend on the type of the ammonium salt. It was found that the mechanism of heat transfer is due to phonons in the region below the melting points of the salts, while above this region the main mechanism is due to conduction.
