About Diamond Nanoparticles

High Purity, D50 = +10 nanometer (nm) by SEMDiamond Nanoparticles (or Nanodiamonds) are high surface area carbon nanomaterials. Nanoscale Carbon Particles are typically 10 - 45 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 30 - 50 m2/g range and also available with an average particle size of 75 - 100 nm range with a specific surface area of approximately 2 - 10 m2/g. Nano Carbon Particles are also available in passivated and Ultra high purity and high purity and coated and dispersed forms. They are also available as a dispersion through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology. Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available. Other nanostructures include nanorods, nanowhiskers, nanohorns, nanopyramids and other nanocomposites. Gold Nanoparticles and Carbon Nanoparticles have found novel application in cancer treatment using radio waves to heat and destroy a tumor, lymphoma, or metastasized cancer. Recent discoveries confirm the feasibility of this technology in humans. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

Carbon Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Carbon's shells is 2, 4 and its electron configuration is [He]2s2 2p2. In its elemental form, carbon can take various physical forms (known as allotropes) based on the type of bonds between carbon atoms; the most well known allotropes are diamond, graphite, amorphous carbon, glassy carbon, and nanostructured forms such as carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and nanofibers . Carbon is at the same time one of the softest (as graphite) and hardest (as diamond) materials found in nature. It is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and the fourth most abundant element (by mass) in the universe after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. Carbon was discovered by the Egyptians and Sumerians circa 3750 BC. It was first recognized as an element by Antoine Lavoisier in 1789.
