Nuclear magnetic resonance studies of nanodiamonds

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

60 Scopus citations


This critical review examines the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) studies of diamond nanoparticles that have been carried out for the past decade. Investigations of purified nanodiamonds and those with chemically modified surfaces are reviewed in detail. These findings are discussed together with results obtained by other methods. For the non-experts in magnetic resonance, the basic principles of NMR experiments and an introduction to the interpretation of the NMR parameters in carbon nanostructures are given.
