CaSrFe0.75Co0.75Mn0.5O6-δ, an oxygen-deficient perovskite, had been reported for its better electrocatalytic properties of oxygen evolution reaction. It is essential to investigate different properties such as the thermal conductivity of such efficient functional materials. The thermal conductivity of CaSrFe0.75Co0.75Mn0.5O6-δ is a critical parameter for understanding its thermal transport properties and potential applications in energy conversion and electronic devices. In this study, the authors present an investigation of the thermal conductivity of CaSrFe0.75Co0.75Mn0.5O6-δ at room temperature for its thermal insulation property study. Experimental measurement was conducted using a state-of-the-art thermal characterization technique, Thermtest thermal conductivity meter. The thermal conductivity of CaSrFe0.75Co0.75Mn0.5O6-δ was found to be 0.724 W/m/K at 25 °C, exhibiting a notable thermal insulation property i.e., low thermal conductivity.
