Graphene researchers create superheated water that can corrode diamonds
A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) led by Professor Loh Kian Ping, Head of the Department of Chemistry at the NUS Faculty of Science, has successfully altered the properties of water, making it corrosive enough to etch diamonds.
This was achieved by attaching a layer of graphene on diamond and heated to high temperatures.
Water molecules trapped between them become highly corrosive, as opposed to normal water.
