    Abstract

    The possibility of applying chemical heat pumps (CHPs) to industrial heat recovery has sparked considerable attention in recent years. As a consequence, a relatively large number of working materials for CHPs have been proposed. In this work, the thermodynamic properties that new working mixtures must exhibit in order to optimize the coefficient of performance (COP) and the temperature lift of the CHP, while keeping suitable pressure levels, are defined. Two simple CHP cycles (temperature and heat amplifier) are considered, although a brief reference is also made to advanced cycles. The actual values of the properties of a number of proposed working mixtures are presented, and their relative merits discussed.
