Abstract
The basis of a novel concept for osmotic heat powered cycles driven by the thermal dependence of the solubility of aqueous solutions inducing the continuous thermal precipitation/dissolution of solute is outlined. In this osmotic concept, given an aqueous solution with a temperature near to its temperature of saturation, if an external thermal input is applied (either by heating or cooling the solution depending of the specific thermal dependence of the solubility) then, partial precipitation of...
