Abstract: Thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were simultaneously measured using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. These values were measured during heating from 303 to 323 K and cooling from 323 to 303 K. It was determined that both thermal conductivity and diffusivity were at their maximum at 313 K, which is in the range of the glass transition temperature.
