NANODIAMONDS-A VERSATILE DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM: A REVIEW
Balu S. Khandare*, Pritishikha Rane and Mayuri Gavhane
In nano-science and nanotechnology basically more no of nano material has been synthesized and discovered rapidly. Nanodiamonds are most disparate origin. Nanodiamonds are other forms of carbon nano-materials with new properties and application these nano-diamonds are found in crude oil at very low concentration like 1000 ppm. The Meteorites, interstellar dust and proto planetary nebulae as well as in certain sediment layers on earth. It can also be produced in the laboratory by using various method chemical vapor deposition or by detonating high explosive materials. Nano diamonds have excellent mechanical and optical properties, also high surface areas and tunable surface structures. Nanodiamonds are prepared by various methods like Detonation method Ultrasonic, Cavitations method and Pulse-laser Irradiation. Here we review the synthesis, structure, properties, and applications of individual Nano diamonds and clusters of Nano diamonds and their useful applications in medical and biological applications.
Keywords: Nanotechnology, Nano particles, Nanodiamonds, Detonation.
