We summarized in this paper the fabrication, properties, and electrochemical applications of diamond nanostructures, mainly diamond nanotextures and diamond nanowires. The characterizations of nanostructures were introduced with different techniques. As example of applications, electrochemical DNA sensing and protein trapping on diamond nanotextures are shown.

Key Words:

  • diamond;
  • nanostructure;
  • sensor
