Zhou and Eames [74] investigated the eutectic salt of 87% LiN[O.sub.3]/13% NaCl to evaluate its potential for latent heat storage with medium-temperature applications (<300[degrees]C).
[82] investigated a potential eutectic salt ([Na.sub.2]C[O.sub.3]/[Li.sub.2]C[O.sub.3]) as the high-temperature PCM.

U, Pu, and other actinides are recovered by the electrorefining process in a LiCl-KCl eutectic salt electrolyte at 500[degrees]C [19-26].
- By material: Salt hydrates, paraffin, and other materials such as fatty acids and eutectic salts
These are themselves filled with eutectic salts: materials which change from solid to liquid at a fairly low temperature (actually 27 degC).
(Water or eutectic salts can also be used as the mass for heat storage.)
