The PCM material utilized for the experimental model is a technical grade of n-tetradecane.
For PCM materials testing, a sample of technical grade n-tetradecane is encapsulated in clear, 1/2 inch (12.
The PCM encapsulation system consists of CPVC tubes filled with technical grade n-tetradecane.
The PCM tests show that the technical grade n-tetradecane maintains a sharp freeze point temperature, but that the freeze point is depressed from 5.
The simultaneous distillation and extraction (SDE) method was chosen for essential oil isolation using Marcusson's type micro-apparatus with n-hexane (500 [micro]L) as solvent and n-tetradecane (2 [micro]L) as internal standard.
The yields of the oil isolated by the SDE method from aromatic plants were calculated by the internal standard method using pure n-tetradecane (> 99.
