This paper reports the results of an experimental study conducted to measure the thermodynamics properties of ionic semiclathrate hydrate formed with tetrabutylammonium propionate (TBAPr). The thermodynamic measurements were performed on the equilibrium temperature and on the dissociation heat of the hydrate in the range of the mass fraction of tetrabutylammonium propionate wTBAPr from 0.10 to 0.43. The highest equilibrium temperature of the TBAPr system was 17.5 °C at wTBAPr = 0.37. The largest dissociation heat of TBAPr system was 193 kJ/kg at wTBAPr = 0.37. These findings indicate that TBAPr hydrate is promising for application in cool energy storage material.
