The salt-ammonia chemisorption cycle has been extensively developed in many areas like low-grade heat driven refrigeration, heat pump, thermal storage and power generation. The kinetic models of salt-ammonia chemisorption were reviewed and discussed in this work, and the values of kinetic parameters in different models were summarized and listed for ammonia chemisorption on BaCl2, CaCl2, MgCl2, MnCl2, NiCl2, PbCl2 and SrCl2. Different methods of modelling kinetics and determining parameters were discussed and compared. It is difficult to conclude which model and parameter values are more accurate than others due to the lack of detailed experimental results and different testing focus and purposes, however, the present chapter has given some recommendations on how to use these models and the way to determine the necessary parameter values.
