Abstract

In this study, it is presented a new analytical method to the calculation of thermophysical properties of some solids important in hydrogen production relevant to the Cu-Cl cycle (Cu, CuO, CuCl). In this way we have used the solution of Debye functions is valid for the all temperature regions with aid of statistical thermodynamics. The analytical results have been compared with some experimental and theoretical data, and the results obtained are satisfactory for the wide range temperature variations. Comparison of the calculation results with the other literature data show that our approach is accurate and efficient.
