Properties, such as thermal conductivity and permeability, are important for the heat and mass transfer performance in sorption refrigeration. This Technical Brief investigates the thermal conductivity and permeability of eight types of chlorides, which are consolidated with expanded natural graphite (ENG) for the heat transfer intensification.
