Detonation Nanodiamonds: Synthesis, Properties and Applications

This chapter addresses present-day views on the synthesis, properties and applications of nanodiamonds fabricated by the detonation of strong explosives, the so-called detonation nanodiamonds (DND). The chapter focuses primarily on the results of DND studies, which have been reliably established and universally accepted, while stressing at the same time the points that, in our opinion, still remain controversial. The main content relates to the features of technology for DNDs, the structure of single DND particles and their suspension, as well as the various applications of DNDs.
