In the present communication the results on thermal conductivity, Seebeck coefficient and specific heat of Pr2/ 3Sr1/3MnO3:PdO composites are reported. All the samples exhibit a pronounced anomaly in thermal conductivity (κ) at their respective Curie temperatures, TC of the samples. It is also observed that the overall magnitude of κ decreases with increasing Pd content. The observed reduction of the total k(T) is discussed with various thermal scattering mechanisms. The temperature-dependent Seebeck coefficient data S(T) in the high temperature region is analyzed within the framework of Mott's polaron hopping model. The analysis of lowtemperature S(T) data reveals that the electron-magnon scattering contribution dominates the thermoelectric transport at low temperatures. The magnetic contribution for the CP and change in entropy (ΔS) during the magnetic phase transition is also evaluated.
