    Got to http://www.matweb.com/search/PropertySearch.aspx
    On the left tree, click fluid.
    On the right choose specific heat capacity, and set a number to your preference as max.
    I have found 22 fluids which are below 0.45 J/gK (which is the specific heat capacity of iron).

    "Heat conductor" is not the same thing as "low specific heat capacity".
    Actually the thermal conduction is usually direct dependent on heat capacity (larger heat capacity=> larger thermal conduction).
