Alkanes (Up one level)
Octadecane gives out 220 joules/gram of energy when changing phase from liquid to solid, and conversely, absorbs the same amount of heat upon melting. This has applications in many areas including bedding, textiles (clothing/carpeting/tiling), automotive, medical heating pads, food and beverage temperature control and construction.
