Ed. 13/2013) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
Diamond nanowires are prepared inside carbon nanotubes by thermal annealing of diamantane-4,9-dicarboxylic acid under a hydrogen atmosphere. The synthesis of, and evidence for, diamond nanowires are described by H. Shinohara and co-workers in their Communication on page 3717 ff. The picture shows the filling of diamantane-4,9-dicarboxylic acid into open-capped double-wall carbon nanotubes, thermal annealing in hydrogen atmosphere (red “smoke"), and conversion into diamond nanowires (golden structures).
