  • Towards nanomedicine

    Diamond nanoparticles or nanodiamonds (NDs) behave several essential assets for biomedical applications: their very weak cytotoxicity and genotoxicity [1], their carbon-related surface chemistry for covalent functionalization of targeting or labeling moieties (oligonucleotides, proteins, fluorescent dyes, peptidic nucleic acids [2],…) and their tunable surface charge toward drug delivery [3]. In particular, detonation nanodiamonds synthetized by explosion [4] combine all this possibilities in a primary size of 5 nm, compatible with kidney filtration for an expected easier elimination. Nevertheless, these NDs are extremely sensitive to their surface state. more
