Abstract:Onion-like carbon (OLC) was fabricated by annealing nanodiamond at 1000°C for 2 h in low vacuum ?1 Pa. The OLC was characterised by a high resolution transmission electron microscope, an X-ray diffractometer and a Raman spectrometer. The results show that the OLC exhibits similarity to the original nanodiamond particles in shape. The average size of the OLC particle is found to be ?5 nm. The nanodiamond particles are transformed into OLC completely after annealing. The transformation mechanism of the OLC from the nanodiamond by annealing at lower temperature is reported.
