Synthesizing Nanomaterials using NANOX Technology
The NANOX® technology for synthesizing nanomaterials has grown from a bottom-up
method and more specifically from chemical synthesis methods.
It uses both hydrolytic and non-hydrolytic chemical synthesis in its production
processes. The hydrolytic methods are based on the hydrolysis of a halide, alkoxide
or an inorganic metal salt, while the non-hydrolytic methods work using a chelating
agent that operates in a solution to form compounds with the metal cations.
Using its own technologies, NANOX® produces nanometric compounds with a
controlled particle size and distribution, elevated homogeneity, controlled
stoichiometry, at a low cost and on an industrial scale. Further, these processes
allow materials with different characteristics to be made compatible, i.e. polar
materials can be chemically transformed so as to incorporate or react with apolar
materials, bringing about significant changes to the materials' properties.
Thus, NANOX® creates atomic-scale materials, modeling the properties of
the materials and surfaces, and can produce a range of amorphous and crystalline
materials, including simple and mixed metal oxides, coatings, nanocompounds
and materials for clean energy.
