Ionic semiclathrate hydrates, the water-based phase change materials (PCMs) have potential for thermal energy storage media. There are a number of hydrates, reported in the literature, which are suitable as PCMs for air conditioning system of the required temperature range 10–15 °C. In this study, Tetrabutylammonium picolinate hydrate (TBAPi hydrate) was newly synthesized as a PCM for the cold chain, which has a lower phase equilibrium temperature than the previously reported hydrates. Thermophysical properties of TBAPi hydrate were experimentally measured. The hydrate dissociation heat was determined using a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). The phase equilibrium temperature was measured by visually observing system with a CMOS camera and microscope. Also, the cycling test was conducted to confirm the long-term stability of thermophysical properties. The largest dissociation heat was 157.7 ± 4.9 kJ・kg−1 at a mass fraction of TBAPi aqueous solution, wTBAPi of 0.37. The highest phase equilibrium temperature of TBAPi hydrate was 5.5 °C at 0.34 ≤ wTBAPi ≤ 0.36. These thermophysical properties did not change even after 200 cycles of hydrate formation and dissociation. Based on the experimental results, TBAPi hydrate can be applied to the transport and storage of vaccines, blood packs, and perishable foods.
