Diamondoids on Verge of Key Application Breakthroughs

Diamondoids on Verge of Key Application Breakthroughs

Ever since Jeremy Dahl of Stanford University first isolated the molecules known as “diamondoids” from crude oil in 2003, the material science community has been fascinated with their potential. Diamondoids , which are both the smallest and purest form of diamond, have a unique set of properties that have led scientists to consider their use in applications including quantum computation and enabling so-called diamondoid mechanosynthesis (DMS), in which diamondoid structures are built using a programmable molecular positioning approach. While DMS may still be a long ways off, researchers at Stanford and the U.S. Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park are continuing to experiment with the material. They have developed more short-term applications for the molecule, while still keeping their eyes on the horizon for its long-term potential. Ha...
