Experimental and thermodynamic study of Co-Fe and Mn-Fe based mixed metal oxides for thermochemical energy storage application

Abstract : Metal oxides are potential materials for thermochemical heat storage, and among them, cobalt oxide and manganese oxide are attracting attention. Furthermore, studies on mixed oxides are ongoing, as the synthesis of mixed oxides could be a way to answer the drawbacks of pure metal oxides, such as slow reaction kinetics, loss-in-capacity over cycles or sintering, selected for thermochemical heat storage application. The addition of iron oxide is under investigation and the obtained results are presented. This work proposes a comparison of thermodynamic modelling with experimental data in order to identify the impact of iron oxide addition to cobalt oxide and manganese oxide. Fe addition decreased the redox activity and energy storage capacity of Co3O4, whereas the cycling stability of Mn2O3 was significantly improved with added Fe amounts above 20 mol% while the energy storage capacity was unchanged. The thermodynamic modelling method to predict the behavior of the Mn-Fe-O and Co-Fe-O systems was validated, and the possibility to identify other mixed oxides becomes conceivable, by enabling the selection of transition metals additives for metal oxides destined for thermochemical energy storage applications.
