||Day of Week:
||Diamond is an extreme carbon material with unrivalled thermal, mechanical, optical, electrical and electrochemical properties. Recent advances in the synthesis, processing and functionalization of diamond have impacted significantly in many different scientific arenas, often using a combination of properties; one of significant importance is analysis and sensing. In this symposium we highlight recent advances in electroanalysis and new generation “smart” electrodes for electrochemical catalysis using boron doped diamond (BDD). We also showcase nanoscale magnetic imaging using diamond nanoparticles which contain single nitrogen-vacancy (NV) defects capable of sensing the magnetic fields associated with small ensembles of spins (and even single electrons).
