Abstract: The effective thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were investigated for polyaniline (PANI) composites containing iron and manganese at varying temperatures. Composites were prepared containing 100% Fe, 50% Fe and 50% Mn, and 100% Mn. It was determined that both the effective thermal conductivity and effective thermal diffusivity increased with increasing iron content. The authors attribute this increase to the increase in crosslinking density between the nitrogen in PANI and Fe.
