Considerations on Iron-Chloride-Oxygen Reactions in Relation to Thermochemical Water-Splitting

  • G. De Beni

Abstract

The properties of iron oxides and chlorides allow the construction of many thermochemical cycles for water-splitting.

There are three fundamental steps in every cycle. Evaluations of these steps for different paths are given.

The state of the knowledge of the chemical reactions is examined and the critical items that need further development are indicated.
