We study theoretically the effect of impurity scattering in f-wave (or ) superconductors. The quasi-particle density of states of f-wave superconductor is very similar to the one for d-wave superconductor as in hole-doped high Tc cuprates. Also in spite of anisotropy in , both the reduced superfluid density and the reduced electronic thermal conductivity is completely isotropic.
