These synthetic diamonds, used in micro-anvils, have produced nearly twice the pressure found at the center of the Earth
New nanodiamond-based dual-mode contrast agent provides clearer and more accurate images of liver tumors at lower dosages
LEGO-style building method has potential for making one-dimensional materials with extraordinary properties
University of Maryland researchers developed a method to build diamond-based hybrid nanoparticles in large quantities from the ground up
Diamonds, usually forged in overwhelming heat and pressure miles deep in the Earth’s mantle, have now been made at atmospheric pressure and 100 degrees Celcius—the boiling point of water.
Chemoresistance or the specific resistance acquired by cells to the action of certain chemicals commonly hinders the treatment of cancer. Existing ways to address this issue revolve around using competitive inhibitors, but have limited success. Now, a research team led by Assistant Professor Edward Chow of the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI) at NUS has found that binding multiple molecules of a common leukaemia drug with nanodiamonds can neutralise chemoresistance.
