Thermoelectric materials require low thermal conductivity for attaining high ZT of dimensionless figure of merit. It is a common practice now to reduce the lattice thermal conductivity through scattering heat-carrying phonons at interfaces by introducing nanoparticles in the matrix. Hydrothermal methods to synthesize bismuth telluride alloys and n-type cobalt skutterudite are adopted. The resulting powders are cold pressed and sintered in an evacuated ampoule. A remarkable low thermal conductivity of 0.41 Wm-1K-1 and hence a ZT of 1.65 can be attained for Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3-δ at 290 K. Hydrothermal synthesis of pristine n-type CoSb3 provides a rapid and low temperature fabrication route and low thermal conductivity of 1.33 Wm- 1K-1 as compared to lengthy annealing and reaction at high temperature using solid state reaction. The thermal conductivity reported for CoSb3 synthesized from solid state reaction methods falls in the range of 3 and 10 Wm-1K-1 at room temperature.
