Research output: Patent


Embodiments of the present disclosure describe a method of energy storage and release based on crystallization-dissolution comprising heating a solute-solvent system to decrease a solubility of a solute in the solvent and induce crystal formation; cooling a solute-solvent system to increase the solubility of the solute in the solvent and induce crystal dissolution; wherein energy is stored in the crystal upon heating and released from the crystal upon cooling.
