The goal is to develop novel PCMs for the temperature range 100 to 200 °C based on organic PCM. The base compounds are chemically modified to create low-cost materials which have improved thermophysical properties and remain save. The improved PCM is also tested in a storage.

The thermophysics laboratory is measuring phase change enthalpies and temperatures of different already known and novel synthesized organic PCM. Also the thermophysical measurements of the storage components are conducted.
