Graphene made with isotopically pure carbon (12 and no 13) has 10 times better thermal conductivity than copper.
I find this interesting, maybe future heatsinks are going to use some graphene, aluminium is getting long in the tooth.

Any updates on this, or physical products that are being sold somewhere? Anyone?
