Scientists find big hope in tiny diamonds

Abstract:
Nanodiamonds ("nano" comes from the Greek word for "dwarf") have potential applications for industrial polishing and grinding and as a hardening agent in nickel-based coatings that would be more durable and less costly than chrome.

But now their possibilities for biomedical use have become more attractive perhaps as magic bullets for carrying drugs or genes and tiny robots for performing cell repairs, or in stronger coatings for artificial joints and bones thanks to researchers at the University of Dayton and Wright-Patterson's Air Force Research Laboratory.
