It's commonplace already, I think. If my understanding holds true, ammonia + some other fun things are the magic that makes heatpipes work.

What do regular heatpipes used? According to wiki they already use ammonia...

The vast majority of heat pipes for low temperature applications use some combination of ammonia (213–373 K), alcohol (methanol (283–403 K) or ethanol (273–403 K)) or water (303–473 K) as working fluid.


Edit - as dxx says, beat me to the punch!

Nup, they're hollow with these gases + magic inside. Try tapping one, you'll hear and feel that it's far too light to be solid copper.
