Thermal property is meant the response of a material to the application of heat.

As a solid absorbs energy in the form of heat, its temperature rises and its dimensions
increase. The energy may be transported to cooler regions of the specimen if temperature
gradients exist, and ultimately, the specimen may melt. Heat capacity, thermal expansion,
and thermal conductivity are properties that are often critical in the practical utilization of
solids.
Optical property includes color, luster, streak, index of refraction dispersion and a
particular kind of luminescence called fluorescence. All these properties are also dependent
on the interaction of light, mineral structure and composition and human vision.
In other words the difference of Optical property and Thermal property are the
temperature and the light spectrum of the materials.

List of examples in electrical properties.

paper,(dry) wood, Plastic, air, diamond, pure water
Semi-conductors:
Diamond, silicon, germanium, sulphur, boron, tellurium, aluminium, gallium, indium, zinc,
lead, and manganese.

Different noise frequencies and different transmission modes call for different
materials installed in different locations. The materials like Panels (for walls, floors, and
ceilings) which have different types Drywall (also called wallboard, plasterboard, or gypsum
board, drywall. Drywall which incorporates a sound damping layer; examples are SilentFX,
Quiet Rock, and suppress. Sound-deadening fibreboard (also call soundboard or acoustical
board), such as SoundChoice or Homasote. Mass-loaded vinyl (MLV), Insulation, ,
Damping compound (viscoelastic adhesive), such asGreen Glue Noiseproofing Compound
or QuietGlue Pro.
