    The studies in this thesis were performed to explore different applications of fluorescent diamonds based on NV centers. In Chapter 2 FND-Diazoxide complexes are developed, to achieve drug delivery and real-time free radical detection at the same time. In Chapter 3 FNDs are utilized as a free radical sensor in samples from patients for diagnostics for the first time, which proves the potential application of FND in clinical fields. In Chapter 4 bulk diamonds are modified with plasma, and a chemical gradient is formed on the surface. This allows the optimization of the diamond surface chemistry for magnetometry applications. Chapter 5 is a discussion of the thesis and Chapter 6 is the summary.
