The catalytic activity of detonation nanodiamond and its modifications obtained through treatment with hydrogen or air at elevated temperatures is studied in the conversion of C(2)-C(3) alcohols. The catalysts were characterized by means of electron microscopy, optical (FTIR) spectroscopy, elemental analysis and pulse microcatalytic method. It has been established that nanodiamond exhibits high catalytic activity in the conversion of alcohols. The oxidizing and reducing treatment of nanodiamond changes its activity and selectivity, and the activity of oxidized nanodiamond is considerably higher than that of reduced nanodiamond.
