Abstract: In this research article, the thermal conductivity of a polyoxymethylene (POM)/graphite composite was explored. This composite was prepared through an intense process of four intercalation methods; melt, solution, pan milling and in situ intercalation. Graphite is a thermally conductive material, and therefore, it was no surprise when researchers determined that the thermal conductivity of the POM composite increased with the addition of graphite. Thermal conductivity was also noted to increase, when a coupling agent was added to the composite.
