Paper Abstract

A laser induced photoacoustic technique has been employed to measure the thermal effusivity value of natural rubber latex in the liquid as well as in the solid state. The nano Zinc Oxide particles synthesized via precipitation technique is incorporated to the natural rubber latex. The influence of molar fractions of nanoparticles on the thermal effusivity value of host polymer is investigated. Detailed analysis of the results shows that the rubber latex in the solid state exhibits lower value for the thermal effusivity value in comparison to the liquid state. The molar fraction of the nanoparticle is found to influence the effective thermal effusivity value in a substantial manner. Results are explained in terms of nanoparticle and phonon assisted thermal energy transport in these samples.
