Today’s Patent- DIAMOND SYNTHESIS
Diamond is one of best known and sought-after gemstone, synthesized widely and used for abrasives, cutting and polishing tools, and in heat sinks. This Synthetic diamond is a lab-grown material that improves upon the chemically and physically inert characteristics to make natural diamond a key material for various scientific applications. This process was first Patented by USPTO by Francis. P. Bundy in the year 1960.
The need for a readily available source of diamonds has arisen because of its increased usage and the very few known sources of diamonds in the world at present. There has been a great deal of efforts used in the past in attempting to convert carbonaceous materials into diamond.
This invention is a method of converting carbonaceous materials into diamonds more particularly, the synthesis of diamonds employing platinum as a catalyst. The need for a readily available source of diamonds has arisen because of its increased usage and the very few known sources of diamonds in the world at present.
A further aim of the present invention is to provide a method for the conversion of carbonaceous materials into diamond under the action of extremes of heat and pressure in the presence of platinum.
In today’s world, this process Diamond synthesis enables precise control of the properties so that diamonds can be specifically engineered for different industrial applications.
