Synthesis of Nanodiamond Powder By Detonation Method And The Application In Various Fields

Soviet scientists had discovered in 1963 that nanodiamonds powder was possible from carbon-based explosives-caused nuclear explosions. The detonation process has been used to create this promising material since 1963.

Synthesis – nano-diamond crystal powder using detonation method

Hydrothermal synthesis or ion bombardment can produce nano-diamond in powder form, but the detonation process is quicker, has higher efficiency and requires less energy. The detonation method has been renamed nano-diamonds. It’s one of the major industrial production techniques.

A nano-diamond powder is synthesised by means of detonation. It has an excellent production efficiency. It is a process that converts the carbon of the explosion system into diamond through the use of high temperature and high pressurized during an explosion. A nano-diamond-containing black powder, which is thermodynamically stable, is prepared by this method.

The process of obtaining gray nano-diamonds powder from black powder involves special processing. It is possible to recover between 8-10% and 97-97% of the explosive mass.

Nanodiamond Powder Application:

Nanodiamonds possess unique properties that make them useful for precision polishing or lubrication, chemical catalyst, composite coatings as well as high-performance metal composite materials.

A variety of Nano-diamond powder polishing pastes/suspensions are used for medical, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and gemstone industries. It has the benefit of mirroring any solid. The surface roughness Ra can range from 2-8nm.

The addition of nano-diamond oil to the lubricating oleo makes the sliding friction turn into rolling friction. The friction pair becomes hardened and smooth by gradually altering its surface to produce metal carbides. They have an anti-friction effect and anti-wear that is incomparable to organic chemical approaches. This can help improve Engine and transmission life and reduce fuel consumption.

Nano-diamond has super-hard particles and the double properties of powder. It can be used for reinforced rubber production and reinforced resin. This plays a major role in the material’s thermal conductivity. It also helps to reduce polymer degradation temperatures, increase strength, and improve wear resistance. Nano-diamond’s potential for future development is great in the area of new composite material.

Excellent optical properties include excellent light transmittance and high index. The film is also very wear-resistant and chemical resistant. It is therefore an ideal material for many optical windows. Nano-diamond protective coating on optical glass can greatly improve optical lenses’ resistance to rain, dirt, and scratches.

Although nanodiamond powder can be used in many ways and has excellent performance, it is still being explored in many fields like environmental protection engineering and biomedical. Although they have great potential, their value proposition and prospects remain limited. In the long-term, however, it is not likely that there will be related products. These are areas that have the highest market maturity, performance and reputation for cost and reliability.
