The published literature on the thermal conductivity of natural rubber was assembled and the results critically evaluated. Best values of thermal conductivity as a function of temperature were selected. These are presented in both graphical and tabular form the tables cover the range 80 to 380K. An attempt was made to consult all work that could significantly affect the choice of best values. Published papers were located with the aid of Chemical Abstracts, Physics Abstracts, the Thermophysical Properties Retrieval Guide, and some other general sources. In addition, relevant references in the papers themselves were followed up until a substantially closed system had been generated, as shown by the fact that no new references were being turned up.
