European nanodiamond producer Carbodeon has been granted a Chinese patent for its technology which enables detonation-synthesised diamond particles (nanodiamonds) to be combined with polymers for use in fields such as personal electronics, LED lighting, automotive components and machine tools. The grant is a continuation to patents granted in the USA and Finland and by the European Patent Office (EPO).

‘China is now the biggest component manufacturing market in the world,’ said Dr Vesa Myllymäki, CEO of Carbodeon. ‘This patent opens up this vast market for us though our local representatives Hangzhou Rayoung Trading Ltd. According to the company, diamonds exhibit the highest known thermal conductivity and electrical insulation of any material, allowing their use within electronics devices including cell phones, LED lighting, automotive parts and E-mobility.
