Quantum upper bounds to thermal conductance are computed for zigzag single walled carbon nanotubes of different diameters. Upper bounds to energy and entropy flow are also computed. The results impose a stringent limit on the maximum values that any experiment or simulation could obtain. Some previous theoretical simulations have violated the theoretical maxima.
