Back Cover: Chromatographic Separation of Highly Soluble Diamond Nanoparticles Prepared by Polyglycerol Grafting (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 6/2011)
Nanodiamond that is highly soluble in a physiological environment was fabricated through ring-opening multibranching polymerization of glycidol at high temperature under neutral conditions. In their Communication on page 1388 ff., N. Komatsu and co-workers describe the preparation of the polyglycerol-functionalized nanodiamond, characterization by solid-phase NMR, IR, and Raman spectroscopy and elemental analysis, and separation of the particles according to their size by size-exclusion chromatography.
