The quantization of energy is of fundamental importance for quantum thermodynamics, even for macroscopic systems. The fragility of quantum coherence naturally makes it less so. However the scale of control of the dynamics of small systems in current experiments is such that understanding basic constraints on how quantum coherences can evolve/be manipulated in a thermodynamic setting is of interest. I will discuss a few such constraints that go beyond free-energy type relations, although the most general form of the problem remains open.
