The chemical reaction of a hydrogenated diamond surface with the radical initiator benzoyl peroxide was performed in order to investigate the reactivity of the diamond surface. It was found that the hydrogen atoms on the diamond surface are abstracted by the radical species generated from benzoyl peroxide. The reaction rate was calculated from the experimental data. The hydrogen abstracted diamond surface reacts with radical species generated from the benzoyl peroxide, not with the solvent.
