We consider thermoelectric transport in correlated metals with disorder within a simple phenomenological approach. We allow for a particle-hole asymmetry in the inelastic scattering rate. We find that the effects of this asymmetry disappear at low temperatures in Fermi liquids (where electronic contribution to resistivity ρT2) but not in non-Fermi liquids (ρTνν≤1), which can lead to changes of sign of the Seebeck coefficient at low temperatures with respect to that found in a band theory. We apply the theory [1] to recent measurements of thermoelectric transport in Nd-LSCO cuprate close to the pseudo-gap ending point [2] and show that both the inplane and outofplane measured resistivity and the Seebeck coefficient are consistently described.
