Summary of "Using hydrogen isotope incorporation as a tool to unravel the surfaces of hydrogen-treated nanodiamonds."

We report here on a robust and easy-to-implement method for the labelling of detonation nanodiamonds (DND) with hydrogen isotopes (deuterium and tritium), using thermal annealing performed in a closed system. With this method, we have synthesized and fully characterized (FTIR, Raman, DLS, 3H/2H/1H and 13C MAS NMR) deuterium-treated and tritium-treated DND and demonstrated the usefulness of isotope incorporation in investigating the surface chemistry of such nanomaterials. For instance, surface treatment with deuterium coupled to FTIR spectroscopy allowed us to discriminate the origin of C-H terminations at the DND surface after the hydrogenation process. As a complementary, tritium appeared very useful for quantification purposes, while 1,2,3H NMR confirmed the nature of the C-1,2,3H bonds created. This isotopic study provides new insights into the characteristics of hydrogen-treated DND.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hydrogen. The first chemical element in the periodic table. It has the atomic symbol H, atomic number 1, and atomic weight 1. It exists, under normal conditions, as a colorless, odorless, tasteless, diatomic gas. Hydrogen ions are PROTONS. Besides the common H1 isotope, hydrogen exists as the stable isotope DEUTERIUM and the unstable, radioactive isotope TRITIUM.

The radioactive isotope of hydrogen also known as hydrogen-3. It contains two NEUTRONS and one PROTON in its nucleus and decays to produce low energy BETA PARTICLES.

A sodium-hydrogen antiporter expressed by many cell types, especially on the basolateral surfaces of EPITHELIAL CELLS. It functions through an inward sodium ion chemical gradient to eliminate acids (protons) generated by metabolism and regulate intracellular pH. It is highly sensitive to AMILORIDE.

The normality of a solution with respect to HYDROGEN ions; H+. It is related to acidity measurements in most cases by pH = log 1/2[1/(H+)], where (H+) is the hydrogen ion concentration in gram equivalents per liter of solution. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)

Deuterium. The stable isotope of hydrogen. It has one neutron and one proton in the nucleus.
