Several reports have described the relationship between size, aspect ratio, surface modification and internalization for a variety of nanoparticles (i.e. gold, polymer, carbon nanotubes). Nanodiamonds (NDs) in particular have recently been implicated in a variety of biomedical applications. One of the most promising is in utilizing NDs as drug delivery carriers where successful internalization is of utmost importance. A few reports recently have demonstrated the energy dependent internalization of bare NDs. In this report, we investigate the internalization mechanism and kinetics of functional ND-conjugate translocation.
