Nissan Chemical America Corporation produces colloidal silicas and metal oxide solutions for scratch-resistant coatings for eyeglass lenses, automobile clear coats, and many other plastic parts needing protective coatings. The company also produce high-purity colloidal silicas used in the production of polishing slurries for the semiconductor industry. Their colloidal silicas are also used in the manufacture of synthetic fibers and textiles.
The company produces high quality one-dimensional ceramic nanomaterials including titania nanotubes, titania nanowires, alumina nanowires, magnesia nanowires etc. Their flagship technology is Bendable Ceramic Paper Membranes.
Phosphorex develops and supplies various types of microspheres and nanospheres for a broad range of scientific applications. In addition to supplying ultra pure polystyrene nanospheres and microspheres, we encapsulate fluorescent, phosphorescent, near-infrared and color dyes in polymers to form particles with sizes ranging from 20 nm to over 20 µm.
Quantum Materials Corporation (QMC) is now commercializing a low cost quantum dot technology of a superior quality and characteristics. This revolutionary new quantum dot production technique, developed by Dr. Michael S. Wong and colleagues of William Marsh Rice University, Houston, TX., has been acquired under an exclusive, world-wide license. Our new synthesis method is mass producible using continuous flow technology processes developed in conjunction with Access2Flow microreactor technology. QMC's research and development group was instrumental in developing the new scaling-up process.
