A brief review of one-dimensional conductors with emphasis on the synthetic criterion, the model systems of radical ion salts, charge transfer complexes, metal chain systems, polymeric conductors and A3B compounds is given.

A dual level high pressure cell using Bridgman anvils was constructed to facilitate simultaneous measurement on the samples. The anvils were of 4 mm and 5 mm diameter respectively. The anvils were made from tungsten carbide (3% cobalt binder). Pyrophyllite and steatite were used as the gasket and the pressure transmitting medium. The cell was calibrated against the polymorphic phase transition of bismuth and ytterbium.

The effect of pressure on non-ohmic conduction and electrical switching in the charge transfer complex benzidine-DDQ has been studied up to a pressure of 7·66 GPa at a temperature of 300K. Pulsed I-V measurements reveal heating contribution to non-ohmicity and switching. At high electric fields (∼ 3 × 103 V/cm), the sample switches from high resistance OFF state of several kiloohms to low resistance ON state of several ohms. Temperature dependence of conductivity of ON state show semiconducting behaviour with very low activation energy.

Thermal expansion of irradiated nylon-6 has been studied in the temperature range 10 to 340 K using a three-terminal capacitance bridge technique. Irradiation is carried out using cobalt-60 γ-rays up to 500 Mrad dosage. Radiation enhances chain scission over crosslinking. α increases from 0 to 250 Mrad between 10 to 340 K and not much variation is observed between 250 to 500 Mrad for samples from 10 to 250 K.

We describe briefly the experimental facilities developed for the measurement of thermal conductivity of solids in the temperature range 10K–300K. Different techniques have been used for the determination of thermal conductivity, depending on the relaxation time of the system under investigation. Measurements on stainless steel 304, using steady state and non-steady state methods are presented. Values of thermal conductivity obtained by both these methods agree to each other and are consistent with those reported earlier.
