The catalytic efficiency of modified nanodiamonds (MND) in reactions of
interaction between organic compounds was demonstrated on the example of
azocoupling reaction (hydrogen peroxide-4-aminoantipyrine-phenol). It was found
that catalytic action of MND was caused by redox active metal ions of Fe and Cu
located on the MND surface. The neutralization of the ions significantly
decreased catalytic properties of MND.
