Abstract: Diamond is an attraction for the human kind due to its unique properties. A brief detail of the synthesis of nanodiamond is reviewed. Scientifically the conversion of graphite into diamond takes place by high transient pressure and high adiabatic temperature. The production of synthetic diamonds has opened the floodgates to evermore innovative applications. The diamond industry is now facing a "new diamond age" in which synthetic diamonds have chemically, physically and scientifically become identical to natural diamonds. Scientists developed the nano diamond in 1963 in past USSR, but the commercial nano diamond was marketed only after 1990. The nano diamond is characterised by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy and XRD technique. Nano diamond became the prominent candidate due to their small size and hardness. It is frequently used for the production of hardest material for polishing medium for the hard surface. The use in the biomedical and life saving drugs are significantly appreciable in saving the life of human.
