Paper Title:
Studies on Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate as Phase Change Materials
  Abstract

Magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MgCl2•6H2O), which has a melting temperature of 389.7 K and latent heat of 168.6 kJ/kg, is one of the cheapest materials used as the thermal energy storage material. Like most hydrated salts, MgCl2•6H2O also has the problems of supercooling and phase segregation to limit its application. In this paper, some new progresses on magnesium chloride hexahydrate as phase change materials are summarized, and the new trend in the future is pointed out.
