The thermal diffusivity, electric resistivity, and Seebeck coefficient of liquid mercury have been measured under pressures up to >600 MPa (6 kbar) near room temperature. The thermal diffusivity was measured by a modified two-frequency Ångström method, capable of taking into account radial heat loss by conduction. The pressure dependence of the thermal conductivity was calculated, and the Lorenz ratio was found to be independent of volume. In the same experiment, the compressibilities of two epoxy resins (Araldite) were measured.
