Polyols are an emerging phase change materials (PCM) category for thermal energy storage (TES), with moderate phase change temperatures and considerable enthalpies. These can be employed in systems for harvesting surplus energy from, industrial and power generation processes. However, knowledge on the properties of polyols in relation to desirable PCM properties is presently sparse and rather inconsistent. This work summarizes a literature review on polyols as PCM for TES. In addition, preliminary T-History characterization of some selected polyols was done. This study is expected to be an initiation of an extensive polyol phase equilibrium evaluation.
