This paper presents effective thermal conductivity of eicosane-based phase change materials with copper oxide nanoparticles measured experimentally by using the transient plane source technique. The dependence of thermal conductivity of the composites in both liquid and solid phases on temperature and the loading of nanoparticles are investigated.
