Title: Solar thermochemical reactor, methods of manufacture and use thereof and thermogravimeter

A solar thermochemical reactor contains an outer member, an inner member disposed within an outer member, wherein the outer member surrounds the inner member and wherein the outer member has an aperture for receiving solar radiation. An inner cavity and an outer cavity are formed by the inner member and outer member and a reactive material that is capable of being magnetically stabilized is disposed in the outer cavity between the inner member and the outer member.
