© 2018 Elsevier Ltd Composite sorbent is widely recognized as a feasible solution to the improvement of ammonia solid sorption due to large sorption capacity, high sorption/desorption rate, good thermal and mechanic stability. This paper mainly focuses on two kinds of composite sorbents for ammonia sorption i.e. activated carbon and metal halides. Various matrices are analyzed and compared when considering different developing techniques. Thermal conductivity and permeability of composite sorbents are summarized in terms of compression density, mass ratio of sorbent and testing methods. Sorption characteristics e.g. sorption capacity and reaction rate are also be taken into account, which are compared with that of parent sorbents. Based on the comparative investigation of these thermophysical properties, the paper unrolls a comprehensive picture of advantages and disadvantages of each composite sorbent for ammonia sorption, which will be quite conducive to the design of sorption systems for various applications e.g. sorption refrigeration and sorption thermal energy storage.
