In order to deploy detonation nanodiamonds (NDs) in nanomedicine and drug delivery applications, fundamental understanding of their surface chemistry and drug loading capacity is highly desirable. Herein, bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) derived peptides have been successfully grafted onto NDs using carbodiimide crosslinker chemistry. Initially, functional surface groups of wet- and dry-oxidized NDs were compared using infrared and mass spectroscopy. Dry-oxidized NDs exhibit the highest amount of carboxylic acid derivatives with a surface loading of 0,113 mmol/g after air annealing at 415 °C for 5 hours determined by mass spectroscopy. Compared to wet-oxidation the dry-oxidation process shows a two-fold increased amount of carbonyl compounds deduced from infrared spectroscopy. Crosslinking of the carboxylic acid derivatives to the primary amines of BMP-2 derived peptides is feasible in the range of 30-96 % total binding efficacy. 1:1 and 5:1 ND-peptide ratios were utilized to study the binding efficacy of NDs using fluorescence spectroscopy. The chemisorption of BMP-2 derived peptides onto NDs reveals superior binding efficacy and results in reproducible amounts of tethered bioactive molecules.
