Fluorescent Nanodiamonds Book Review:

The most comprehensive reference on fluorescent nanodiamond physical and chemical properties and contemporary applications Fluorescent nanodiamonds (FNDs) have drawn a great deal of attention over the past several years, and their applications and development potential are proving to be manifold and vast. The first and only book of its kind, Fluorescent Nanodiamonds is a comprehensive guide to the basic science and technical information needed to fully understand the fundamentals of FNDs and their potential applications across an array of domains. In demonstrating the importance of FNDs in biological applications, the authors bring together all relevant chemistry, physics, materials science and biology. Nanodiamonds are produced by powerful cataclysmic events such as explosions, volcanic eruptions and meteorite impacts. They also can be created in the lab by high-pressure high-temperature treatment of graphite or detonating an explosive in a reactor vessel. A single imperfection can give a nanodiamond a specific, isolated color center which allows it to function as a single, trapped atom. Much smaller than the thickness of a human hair, a nanodiamond can have a huge surface area that allows it to bond with a variety of other materials. Because of their non-toxicity, nanodiamonds may be useful in biomedical applications, such as drug delivery and gene therapy. The most comprehensive reference on a topic of rapidly increasing interest among academic and industrial researchers across an array of fields Includes numerous case studies and practical examples from many areas of research and industrial applications, as well as fascinating and instructive historical perspectives Each chapter addresses, in-depth, a single integral topic including the fundamental properties, synthesis, mechanisms and functionalisation of FNDs The first book published by the key patent holder with his research group in the field of FNDs Fluorescent Nanodiamonds is an important working resource for a broad range of scientists and engineers in industry and academia.

Diamond based materials for biomedical applications Book Review:

Nanodiamonds offer a potential novel template for drug delivery and targeting, because of their small primary particle size, purity, excellent properties, facile surface functionalization, high biocompatibility, and inexpensive large-scale synthesis. However, nanodiamond properties such as aggregation state, surface chemistry, and presence of impurities, as well as the localization and accumulation behavior at the organism level, must be controlled to maintain safety and retain efficacy of conjugated therapeutic agents. A clinically applicable approach requires investigation of biocompatibility, biodistribution, and biological fate of the nanodiamond as well as its conjugates.

Synthesis Properties and Applications of Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Book Review:

We are pleased to present the Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop “Syntheses, Properties and Applications of Ultrananocrystalline Diamond” which was held June 7-10, 2004 in St. Petersburg, Russia. The main goal of the Workshop was to provide a forum for the intensive exchange of opinions between scientists from Russia and NATO countries in order to give additional impetus to the development of the science and applications of a new carbon nanostructure, called ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) composed of 2-5 nm crystallites. There are two forms of UNCD, dispersed particles and films. The two communities of researchers working on these two forms of UNCD have hitherto lacked a common forum in which to explore areas of scientific and technological overlap. As a consequence, the two fields have up to now developed independently of each other. The time had clearly come to remedy this situation in order to be able to take full advantage of the enormous potential for societal benefits to be derived from exploiting the synergistic relationships between UNCD dispersed particulates and UNCD films. The NATO sponsored ARW therefore occurred in a very timely manner and was successful in beginning the desired dialogue, a precondition for making progress toward the above stated goal. The discovery of UNCD completes a triadof nanostructured carbonswhich includes fullerenes and nanotubes.

Attack Surface Book Review:

Cory Doctorow's Attack Surface is a standalone novel set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Little Brother and Homeland. Most days, Masha Maximow was sure she'd chosen the winning side. In her day job as a counterterrorism wizard for an transnational cybersecurity firm, she made the hacks that allowed repressive regimes to spy on dissidents, and manipulate their every move. The perks were fantastic, and the pay was obscene. Just for fun, and to piss off her masters, Masha sometimes used her mad skills to help those same troublemakers evade detection, if their cause was just. It was a dangerous game and a hell of a rush. But seriously self-destructive. And unsustainable. When her targets were strangers in faraway police states, it was easy to compartmentalize, to ignore the collateral damage of murder, rape, and torture. But when it hits close to home, and the hacks and exploits she’s devised are directed at her friends and family--including boy wonder Marcus Yallow, her old crush and archrival, and his entourage of naïve idealists--Masha realizes she has to choose. And whatever choice she makes, someone is going to get hurt. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Stellar and Interstellar Origins of Meteoritic Nanodiamonds Book Review:

In 1987 presolar grains were first isolated from meteorites, opening up a new line of data about the stars that produced them. Based on anomalies in isotopic ratios, identification and classification of presolar grains has borne great fruit in understanding nucleosynthesis, stellar evolution, and mass loss from the stellar objects in which these grains originated: primarily, but not exclusively, supernovae and asymptotic giant branch stars.Meteoritic nanodiamonds were the first type of presolar grain identified, but more than three decades later, their origins remain unclear. Anomalies in the ratios of Xe isotopes carried by the nanodiamonds suggest the nanodiamonds formed from supernova material, but, measured in bulk, the ratios of 12C/13C and 14N/15N are consistent with formation in the solar system. Nanodiamonds are 3̃ nm in diameter and contain only a few thousand atoms each, such that it is impossible to measure the isotopic ratios of single grains with traditional techniques.A multi-part experimental approach has allowed me to investigate the origins of meteoritic nanodiamonds. I use statistical studies with nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry of thousands of small aggregates of nanodiamonds to put upper limits on the fraction of them that can have non-solar ratios of the stable isotopes 12C and 13C and to detect isotopically anomalous statistical outliers. I also continue a collaborative work to measure the ratio of 12C/13C in individual nanodiamonds. This work adapts the experimental technique of atom-probe tomography from materials science to presolar grain research, and to that end my collaborators and I have worked extensively to mature the experimental procedures. I use focused ion beam sample preparation and correlated secondary and transmission electron microscopy to characterize samples before and after atom-probe isotopic analysis.These studies characterize the likelihood of various origins for individual and small clusters of nanodiamonds and accompanying disordered C, based on ratios of 12C/13C isotopes. The results are consistent with solar system formation for most nanodiamonds, although they do not necessarily rule out a large fraction of supernova grains with isotopic anomalies averaging close to the solar system value. The data suggest that a small subset of nanodiamonds have large isotopic enrichments in 13C relative to 12C. Supernovae are favored due to their production of the Xe isotopes, although J-star or novae could also produce this isotopic anomaly.
