Abstract: In this study, a new type of sorption process was developed using activated carbon (AC) as a porous host to carry LiCl. A silica solution (SS) and expanded natural graphite treated with sulfuric acid (ENG-TSA) were added to increase heat transfer and mechanical strength of the composite. Thermal conductivities of the samples were measured using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique. Results found higher thermal conductivities directly correlated to larger densities.
