Carbodeon uDiamond® Vivace is a high‐quality, aqueous nanodiamond suspension, containing nanodiamonds in clusters of 100nm up to  a few microns.  It is used as a means to deploy nanodiamonds in aqueous applications, especially where the pH range is outside the stable region of Carbodeon's nanodiamond dispersions (the fully dispersed nanomaterials such as Andante, Hydrogen D and Vox).

The surface functionalisation gives the particles a postiive zeta potential.

The primary application for Vivace is in electroplating with pH<3, for example in hard chrome plating, although other applications also exist and are listed below.
