Experiments were conducted to obtain thermo physical properties of ZrCo and ZrCo hydride, which determine heat transfer phenomena in the hydrogen-ZrCo system. Heat capacity, thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity of ZrCo and ZrCo hydride using Baotou ZrCo (China) are found to have U shaped curvatures with the temperature increase. In the temperature range of 300 - 500 K the thermal conductivity of ZrCoHx was found to be about 2/3 that of ZrCo and the initial hydrogen content of ZrCoHx used in this study was taken to be x=2.0.
