Fluorinated nanodiamond as a precursor for solid substrate surface coating using wet chemistry
AuthorKhabashesku, Valery N.; Liu, Yu; Halas, Nancy J.
The present invention is directed to nanodiamond (ND) surface coatings and methods of making same. Such coatings are formed by a covalent linkage of ND crystals to a particular surface via linker species. The methods described herein overcome many of the limitations of the prior art in that they can be performed with standard wet chemistry (i.e., solution-based) methods, thereby permitting low temperature processing. Additionally, such coatings can potentially be applied on a large scale and for coating large areas of a variety of different substrates.
