Daicel has started supplying eight different types of nanodiamond (ND) samples to international researchers. The ND samples are supplied to researchers in universities and research institutes free of charge to accelerate the development of new applications with NDs.
ND samples contain ζnegative potential NDs water dispersion, ζpositive NDs, polyglycerin modified NDs, and chemically modified NDs in organic solvents.
This wide variety of NDs has been prepared for a range of client purposes. For example, polyglycerin modified NDs are dispersible in ionic solutions and NDs in organic solvents are prepared for mixing into plastics, oils and rubber.
Our webpages for NDs have been updated with newly created content including a sample order system. (https://www.daicel.com/en/research/nanodiamonds.html)
NDs have potential for use in various applications such as additives for lubricants, antioxidants, grain refining agent for plating, bioimaging, drug delivery, diamond sensors, and others.
