Abstract: Disodium hydrogenphosphate dodecahydrate was investigated for its thermophysical properties and the effects that temperature had on these properties. The goal of this work was to determine if this material was a suitable phase change material for use in supercooled thermal energy storage. It was found that this hydrate could efficiently exchange energy between itself and heat sources, it could reduce heat loss from energy storage systems, and it could store both latent and sensible heat.
