Growing evidence indicates that the superconductivity in is of isotropic p-wave type, though its definitive proof is still absent. We present a theoretical study of the effect of impurity scattering on p-wave superconductors. In particular the thermodynamic properties and some of the transport properties are calculated, which can be tested experimentally.
