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 with a Hot Disk TPS 2500, using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique. Results found higher thermal conductivities directly correlated to larger densities.
