Recently, the world's largest investment management corporation, BlackRock, in a market research report said that currently, they prefer U.S. and Japanese equities to European equities because of the energy problem stemming from Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
"Russia's invasion of Ukraine caused terrible injuries, a surge in commodity prices, and food and energy security issues," BlackRock, "It is stifling the economic growth and fulling inflation driven by supply problems. Europe is most affected among those developed markets, as it is trying to wean itself off Russian energy."
The volatile international political situations will continue to affect the markets and prices of many commodities like the nanodiamond powder.
Introduction to Nanodiamond Powder
Diamond is a mineral composed of carbon and is an allotrope of carbon. Diamond is the hardest substance found naturally in nature.
Nanodiamonds or diamond nanoparticles are diamonds with a size less than 1 micron. Due to their cheapness, large-scale synthesis, surface functionalization potential, and high biocompatibility, nanodiamonds have been widely studied as potential materials for biological and electronic applications as well as quantum engineering.

Applications of Nanodiamond Powder
For ultra-fine polishing:
Polishing is the traditional field of diamond application. Even today, polishing, including ultra-fine grinding, is still one of the most important processes in instrument and mechanical manufacturing processes. At present, the commonly used abrasive size is greater than 0.1 μm (100nm), nanodiamonds have high hardness, the particle size is one order of magnitude smaller than the best abrasive, and the carbon surface is easily affected by the chemical change, and can be compatible with any polar medium, this feature makes it possible to uniform distribution of nanodiamond particles in the carrier. Therefore, nano-diamond particles are regarded as a new generation of ideal abrasives for ultra-fine polishing.
Due to its high hardness, diamond freely grinds the tip of the friction surface and quickly removes the uneven micro-peaks on the surface of the friction pair. It is an extremely precise grinding and polishing process, which cannot be achieved by ordinary mechanical processing. This effect makes the contact area between friction pairs increase rapidly, accelerates the running-in process, and improves the running-in accuracy. The spherical and quasi-spherical particles of nano-diamond are embedded in the contact concave between the friction pair. With excellent bearing capacity, the friction surface forms a ball bearing effect, showing good lubricity, turning sliding friction into rolling friction, reducing friction resistance, and avoiding the dry wear phenomenon.
For nanodiamond composite plating:
Nanodiamond has the properties of super hard, high wear resistance, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance of diamond, and its particle surface is rich in hydroxyl, carboxyl, carbonyl, and other functional groups, so it has a strong bonding force with the coated surface. Even with a small amount, it can significantly improve the performance, so it is very suitable for composite plating. It can not only be used for metal surfaces, but also for rubber, plastic, glass, and other surface coatings.
For magnetic recording systems:
Adding nanodiamonds to the ferromagnetic layers of tape and disk can significantly reduce magnetic domains (particles of ferromagnets) and significantly increase the density of the recording.
And introducing nanodiamonds into the clean special film of the magnetic head can significantly increase its wear resistance.
For medical use:
Nanodiamond has high adsorption capacity, large specific surface area, a large number of free electrons on the surface, its nano-size, a large number of oxygen-containing functional groups on the crystal surface, chemical inertia of particles, and hydrophilic surface characteristics, making it can be used for therapeutic agents.
It can be applied to oncology, gastroenterology, cardiology, the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease, etc., they are not carcinogenic or mutagenesis, without poison.
Nanodiamond has very high activity against viruses, microorganisms, and bacteria. Due to their high adsorption capacity and other unique characteristics, they will be strongly absorbed and they are super active adsorbents. In addition, nanodiamond is also useful for gastrointestinal diseases, and it is the best means to prevent burns, various skin diseases, and visceral poisoning after effects.
Nanodiamond is used in aqueous and oily suspensions, which is beneficial to the enhancement of tumor medicinal reagents, the normalization of intestinal peristalsis, the improvement of blood indicators, and the improvement of the activity of life and immune system, the discharge of viruses from the body and so on.

The United States urges the U.N. Security Council to impose additional sanctions on North Korea in response to its latest ballistic missile launch, including a ban on tobacco and oil exports to North Korea and a blacklist of the Lazarus hacking group.
The United States circulated the draft to the 15 members of the Security Council this week. It was not immediately clear if or when a vote would take place. A resolution requires nine "yes" votes and no vetoes from Russia, China, France, Britain, or the United States.
Russia and China have already voiced opposition to tightening sanctions in response to Pyongyang's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile last month -- the first since 2017.
U.S. and South Korean officials and analysts also say there are growing indications that North Korea may soon conduct its first nuclear weapons test since 2017, too.
The U.S. -drafted U.N. resolution would expand the ban on ballistic missile launches to include cruise missiles or "any other delivery system capable of delivering a nuclear weapon."
The deal would halve crude oil exports to North Korea to 2 million barrels a year and refined oil exports to 250,000 barrels a year. The resolution also seeks to ban North Korea's export of "fossil fuels, mineral oils, and their distilled nanodiamond powder are estimated to be influenced by international political situation changes.
