Abstract: Porous monoliths, often referred to as polymerised High Internal Phase Emulsions (polyHIPEs), are materials made of polymers that have applications ranging from chemical engineering to biomedicine. In this paper, a TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of tannin-based monoliths with the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that as the porosity of the polyHIPEs increased, the thermal conductivity decreased linearly, a characteristic that could be used for applications in thermal insulation.
