Homework Help: Good thermal but poor electrical?

  1. Aug 28, 2007 #1
    1. What are the only two materials that are good thermal conductors but poor electrical conductors? I think all metals follow the Wiedemann-Franz Law.

    Diamond is, I believe, one of them.

    Sapphire isn't bad - Diamond is the best.
