An unsteady state technique for the determination of mean thermal diffusivity of porous cylindrical catalyst particles was investigated. A calorimetric procedure was used to determine heat capacity of the pellets, so that thermal conductivity could be calculated. The experimental apparatus and procedures were evaluated by determining thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of "teflon" and five porous catalyst samples at three temperature levels.
