Graphene derived nanomaterials

Country of Origin: Spain
Reference Number: TOES20160315002
Publication Date: 16 March 2016

Summary

A Spanish nanotechnology company has developed a procedure to obtain and modify graphene in liquid media. Such procedure avoids harsh conditions and it can be scaled up ensuring the quality of the products. By using this technology, the company is developing a portfolio of nanocomposites by combining graphene with metal nanoparticles and polymers. They are looking for partners for technical cooperation or manufacture agreements.

Description

The Spanish nanotechnology company has developed a new process for the production of graphene based nanomaterials. The final product obtained is pristine graphene nanoplatelets (GNP), stacked in 1-5 layers with sizes ranging from 1-5micrometers. This graphene can be combined with many chemical species in order to optimize ad-hoc graphene nanomaterials for application developers. It can be used in many areas like: supercapacitors, ceramic or polymer composites, conductive inks, coatings, filtration systems, metal alloys, etc.…
They have proved the robustness , versatility and suitability of its development platform to manufacture graphene derivatives through combination of pristine.
The company counts on a sound scientific background in the nanotechnology, materials and chemistry fields. They want to develop new alternative materials to serve the needs of several industrial sectors like energy, transport, electronics, lubricants, water treatment, paints and coatings, among others.
Their intention is to become a leading player of the graphene-based nanomaterials sector, a fast growing market segment with a huge potential to disrupt the whole industrial sector in the upcoming years.
Thanks to the unique features of the technology, it has the potential to become a gold-standard method for industrial production of graphene based materials, offering a solution to overcome the critical barriers in exploiting the potential of graphene.
They are looking for partners for co-development of nanomaterials based on graphene. Also partners like manufacturing organisations are sought to manufacture and distribute graphene and graphene-derived composites on a large scale.

Advantages and Innovations

The process offers clear advantages over competing processes,  such as its environmental friendliness, its cost efficiency and its enormous versatility for the production of high added value nanomaterials.
The obtained graphene has the following properties:
- Chemical purity and high structural preservation
- Helps to reduce industrial costs: mild energy input. Single-step procedure. Inexpensive solvents and raw materials
- Green procedure. Absence of harsh conditions and chemical treatment. No- toxic green solvents.
- Versatility: to manufacture a broad variety of high add value composites avoiding chemical reactions or multistep procedures.
