A convenient experimental method for measuring the thermal conductivity of uranin (fluorecein sodium, C20H10O5Na2) is described. Two similar blocks of uranin, produced from a strong uranin/water solution, were exposed to one-dimensional steady-state conduction. It was found that, for a mean bulk temperature ranging from ambient up to 55°C, the uranin has a constant thermal conductivity of 0.43 W/mK. Above these temperatures, the material begins to soften and the thermal conductivity is seen to decrease. © 1984.
