Diamond film growth in low-pressure premixed propylene/oxygen flames is demonstrated. Well-faceted films are grown at a pressure of 180 Torr and a fuel/oxygen ratio of 0.47. Using propylene as the fuel may greatly improve the economics of flame synthesis of diamond, since propylene is an order of magnitude cheaper than acetylene.
