Nanodiamonds (NDs) are diamond phase carbon nanomaterials that were initially used for their strong abrasive properties and as lubricant additives for industrial applications. Main types of commercial NDs produced are categorized as high-pressure high temperature (HPHT) nanodiamonds, CVD diamond and detonation nanodiamonds (DND).

Extremely small amounts of nanodiamond additives can modify a variety of thermal and mechanical properties in various parent materials.

Properties include:

  • Diamond core: highest hardness (167 Gpa) and wear resistance
  • Highest thermal conductivity (2300 W/mK)
  • High electrical resistivity (10 cm)
  • Low thermal expansion (1.010-6 K-1)
  • Wide band gap (5.47 eV {300 K})
  • High refractive index (2.417)
  • Low specific gravity (3.52)
  • Chemical/radiation resistance
  • Biocompatibility
  • Large surface area (250- 450 m/g)
  • High & controllable chemical activity of the surface.

Overall, adding nanodiamonds can change most of the currently existing materials. Successful laboratory results and patents have been obtained in respect of many applications. The launch of nanodiamonds commercial production has made it possible to introduce laboratory results into industrial technologies and has enabled the manufacture of mass products. As the production volume of NDs increases and their price decreases, their scope of application will expand.
