Air pollutants turn into nanodiamonds

Updated : May 30, 2019 04:36 PM IST

A team of researchers has explored the potential of transformation of harmful carbonaceous aerosol particles into value-added products that are important to the biomedical industry, paving the way for environmental mitigation.
Constituents of carbonaceous aerosols were converted into nanodiamonds that are essentially bits of crystalline carbon hundreds of thousands of times smaller than a grain of sand.
Atmospheric carbonaceous aerosols significantly change the energy balance of Earth‘s surface and atmosphere and alter cloud properties, thereby affecting climate.
