Abstract The dehydration processes of three selected inorganic salt hydrates, CUSO4·5H2O, NA2HPO4·12H2O and NA2SO4·10H2O, were respectively investigated to obtain the influence of water on the latent heat. Simultaneous DSC (differential scanning calorimetry)-tg (thermogravimetry) combined with Raman spectroscopy were employed to monitored the dehydration processes and the structural variations. The result reveals that for those salt hydrates which dehydrate mainly crystal water at melting point, the role of water in the structure directly influences not merely the thermal effect but the latent heat. For most salt hydrates, the water content exhibits a negative correlation with the latent heat for per mole water. NA2HPO4·12H2O melts to a salt hydrate with fewer moles of water, whereas NA2SO4·10H2O melts to its anhydrous form. Previous studies claim that there exists a quantitative relationship between the latent heat of salt hydrate and the number of crystal water. However, the comparison of the dehydration processes of NA2HPO4·12H2O and NA2SO4·10H2O indicates that whether this conclusion is generally applicable needs further study.
