Abstract: This study aimed to determine the thermal conductivity of gas-filled Metal Organic Framework (MOF) materials. Glass beads were used as the reference material, and nitrogen (N2) and helium (He) were added to the MOF materials. A TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of the MOF samples using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Results showed that the MOF materials containing copper had higher thermal conductivities than iron-filled materials, and the addition of helium improved thermal conductivity more than the addition of nitrogen.
