Nanodiamond Review Article

Our review of nanodiamond is on the list of top 10 most read papers in Nature Nano, 5 years after publication.
This is a phenomenal performance showing continuing interest to the subject, but also the impact of that specific paper – 8 of 10. Most read are 2016 papers. Long lifetime shows a real impact of the paper.
Also, our very recent review of 2D materials for supercapacitors is among the hottest nanomaterials articles of Wiley: http://www.chemistryviews.org/view/0/HottestInorganic.html
