Abstract
Detonation nanodiamonds (ND) exhibit exceptional properties due to their small size, rich surface chemistry, and high surface to volume ratio compared to bulk diamonds [1]. These unique characteristics also affect their Raman spectra. While for other carbon nanomaterials Raman spectroscopy is routinely used for analysis of the structure, ordering and dimensions; the presence of large amounts of non-diamond carbon, broad crystal size distributions, and numerous surface functional groups severely limit the potential of Raman spectroscopy for ND characterization due to poor understanding of their spectral features.
