I will survey Cartan respectively diagonal subalgebras of nuclear C*-algebras. This setup corresponds to a presentation of the ambient C*-algebra as an amenable groupoid C*-algebra, which in turn means that there is an underlying structure akin to an amenable topological dynamical system.

The existence of such subalgebras is tightly connected to the UCT problem; the classification of Cartan pairs is largely uncharted territory. I will present new constructions of diagonals of the Jiang-Su algebra Z and of the Cuntz algebra O_2, and will then focus on distinguishing Cantor Cartan subalgebras of O_2.
