Single isotope diamond is 50% better thermal conductivity of normal diamond. It has been used in laser optics and thermal transfer applications (semiconductor heatsinks). I think the highest reported thermal transfer rate used isotopically pure diamond etched with micro-fluidic channels fed with coolant. GE makes the diamond material... it was developed as part of Reagan's Star Wars project.
Isotopically pure silicon has 60% better thermal conductivity than natural silicon.
Isotopically pure platinum has been used in RTD temperature sensors.
