The reaction mechanism of AeCeO 3 (Ae: Sr, Ba) with CO 2 and its thermodynamics were investigated using scanning-type thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis, TG-DTA, at different CO 2 partial pressures, P(CO 2 ), to estimate their potential as CO 2 absorbents. The standard Gibbs free energy change, ΔG° of SrCeO 3 +CO 2 ↔ SrCO 3 +CeO 2 and BaCeO 3 +CO 2 ↔ BaCO 3 +CeO 2 were estimated from equilibrium temperature obtained by the thermogravimetric analyses at different P(CO 2 ). From an Ellingham diagram, the standard entropy change, ΔS° and standard enthalpy change, ΔH° of each reaction were determined. The obtained ΔS° and ΔH° values of the former reaction showed fair agreement with the thermodynamic calculation, whereas those of the latter reaction showed discrepancies from those of the thermodynamic calculations. The Ellingham diagram also suggested that SrCeO 3 was superior to BaCeO 3 as a CO 2 absorbent because the temperature region of SrCeO 3 for which the absorption reaction occurred was higher than that for BaCeO 3 at constant P(CO 2 ).
