The thermal conductivity and the specific heat capacity per unit volume have been measured for two low viscosity grades of Dow Corning 200 fluid (polydimethyl siloxane) in the range 110 to 350 K and under pressures up to 2.0 GPa (20 kbar). Both the quantities studied are found to increase with increasing pressure in the liquid phase. From the measured data the phase diagrams are obtained. The 5 mm2/s (5 cSt) grade fluid does not crystallize, but undergoes a glass transition at 1.0 GPa at room temperature. The 1 mm2/s (1 cSt) grade has a more complicated phase diagram with a partly crystalline phase at low temperatures and pressures and two glass transitions at high temperatures and pressures.
