Abstract: The heat capacities of the high efficient working fluid used for a heat pipe(Cp) were measured by a low temperature adiabatic calorimeter over the range from 78 to 320 K. No thermal anomaly was observed in the range from 78 to 245 K and 274 to 320 K. The functions of Cp vs T were established based on the measured heat capacity data by least-square fitting method to be Cp/(J•K-1•g-1)=0.5369T+0.07279 in the range of 78.41~245.19 K. The freezing point, freezing enthalpy and freezing entropy of it were determined to be 271.21 K, 353.6 J•g-1 and 1.304 J•K-1•g-1, respectively. The heat capacities of it are near a constant to be Cp/(J•K-1•g-1)=3.403±0.020 in the range 274 K≤T≤320 K. According to the relationship of thermodynamic functions, the thermodynamic function values of the working fluid were calculated in the temperature range of 280~320 K with 5 K intervals.
