Microexplosions Result in Nanodiamonds

Abstract:
Despite the sharp interest to nanodiamonds and rapid development of this industrial branch, Russian scientists still remain trendsetters in growing tiny diamonds, but it is getting harder every day. St. Petersburg recently hosted a remarkable event - International symposium "Detonation Nanodiamonds. Technology. Properties. Applications".

Scientists started industrial synthesis of diamonds in midfifties of the twentieth century. This synthesis was performed by means of graphite transformations in chambers, which provided very high presuure - tens of thousands of atmospheres - and very high temperatures - about 1500 degrees Centigrade. Each year world synthesis of such artificial diamonds produces hundreds thousands carats of these gems, which size from single microns to hundreds of microns - scientists call them diamond micropowders.
