New Findings Reported from Institute of Physics Describe Advances in Materials Science (Directly Thiolated Modification onto the Surface of Detonation Nanodiamonds)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Investigators discuss new findings in Materials Science. According to news reporting from Taipei, Taiwan, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "An efficient method for modifying the surface of detonation nanodiamonds (5 and 100 nm) with thiol groups (-SH) by using an organic chemistry strategy is presented herein. Thiolated nanodiamonds were characterized by spectroscopic techniques, and the atomic percentage of sulfur was analyzed by elemental analysis and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the Institute of Physics, "The conjugation between thiolated nanodiamonds and gold nanoparticles was elucidated by transmission electron microscopy and UV-vis spectrometry. Moreover, the material did not show significant cytotoxicity to the human lung carcinoma cell line and may prospectively be applied in bioconjugated technology."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The new method that we elucidated may significantly improve the approach to surface modification of detonation nanodiamonds and build up a new platform for the application of nanodiamonds."
