Accurate data are presented on the behaviour of the thermal conductivity K as a function of temperature for a pure Ni sample near its Curie point. Previous results on the electrical resistivity (ϱ, dϱ/dT are used to explain the temperature-dependence ofK(T). The results are analysed in terms of electron-phonon ands- d exchange interactions. The critical behaviour of the thermal resistivityW(=K−1) has also been investigated.
