A U.S. patent for “Salt-Assisted Ultrasonic Disaggregation of Nanodiamond” has been awarded to the Curators of the University of Missouri from Missouri S&T inventors:
The patent reflects the work of the three inventors and Cholaphan Deeleepojananan, a 2018 Missouri S&T graduate in chemistry. Their work was featured in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces in 2016 in their paper titled, “Salt-Assisted Ultrasonic Deaggregation of Nanodiamond.”
The patent documents an inexpensive method to break apart nanodiamonds by ultrasound in a sodium chloride solution, facilitating their use in biomedical applications and in polymer composites.
