The Cu/CuO system is a useful oxygen carrier in Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC). The oxidation and reduction reactions of these metal/metal oxide couples were investigated with thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) under various isothermal and isobaric conditions. The results are used to determine the optimal operating conditions for a CLC system.
