Self-assembly in nanodiamond agglutinates

Author affiliations


The stable suspension of single-nano diamond particles has eluded researchers due to persistent agglomeration during purification. Presented here are results of simulations revealing that the aggregation behavior observed in samples of colloidal nanodiamond is due to strong Coulombic interactions, that depend upon the crystallographic index and spatial orientation of the surface facets, resulting in a type of self-assembly.
