The Czech-e15.cz portal states that Czech scientists have discovered the cheap production method of radiation-exposed nanodiates and other materials useful for highly sensitive diagnoses of cancer.
A scientific paper was published in Nature Communications, directed by Petr Cígler of the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Czech Republic Academy of Sciences and Martin Hrubý of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry.
According to the portal, these nanodiamonds are used in diagnostics and nanoparticles and are prepared from graphite as synthetically at high pressures and temperatures. However, pure nanodiamond cannot be used for these purposes. This is the cause of the first damage of the crystal lattice to create specific errors that would allow for optical reading.
This damage has often been generated by a defective method – irradiation of nanodevices with rapid ions in particle accelerators. However, a team of Czech scientists developed a new method of irradiation in a nuclear reactor where neutron-boron atoms, helium and lithium transformed into light and fast flying ions.
HEALTH AND MEDICINE
This type of irradiation has high density and high capacity. Therefore, as the portal notes, tens of grams of rare nanomaterials can be cheaper and more expensive, it can be almost a thousand times more expensive than those prepared by radiation in accelerators. However, this newly discovered method works not only in generating nanomagnetic network failures, but also in silicon carbide. According to scientists, this method can serve on a universal and large scale.
