Nalco has a long history of work in nanotechnology dating to the 1950s and the development of colloidal silicas. Recent innovations such as Core Shell® polymers, modified at the molecular level for use in wastewater treatment and as process aids in papermaking, petroleum refining, mining and food and beverage processing. Joint venture partner in NanoSpecialties, an R&D company for nanotechnology water and process treatments.
Nano Discovery Inc. is a manufacturer of dynamic light scattering (DLS) instruments. The company develops innovative applications using DLS. DLS has been traditionally used mainly for nanoparticle size characterization. By introducing gold nanoparticle probes, the firm developed a unique technology, NanoDLSay (Nanoparticle-Enabled Dynamic Light Scattering Assay)?, for chemical and biological detection and analysis.
