Engineered Polymer and Nanodiamond

Ayesha Kausar


Nanodiamond possess several outstanding properties such as hardness, strength, Young’s modulus, heat stability, and thermal conductivity. Nanodiamond is stable and may offer a biocompatible interface. Due to high strength to weight ratio and low friction coefficient, these nanocomposites find applications in structural, tribological, engineering, and other sectors. Nanodiamond has large specific surface area to develop polymer-nanofiller interactions. Interphase has been developed in the vicinity of nanodiamond surface and polymer. The interphase holds great potential for obtaining high performance engineered nanocomposites. Polymer/nanodiamond nanocomposites have also been used to form multifunctional tissue scaffolds.
