Nanophase Technologies Corp: Expanded Nanomaterials Line
May 15, 2003
Nanophase Technologies Corp. recently announced additions to its family of NanoArc(TM) nanomaterials. Nanophase is introducing what it believes is the first commercial nanoscale availability of an innovative family of high surface area, very pure nanocrystalline rare earth oxides. NanoArc nanomaterials are targeted at a wide variety of potential applications, including fuel cells, chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP), ultrafine polishing, catalytic converters and catalysis. These nanomaterials are single- or multi-element rare earth oxides that are combined in a single-phase crystal. They are produced using the company's proprietary (patent pending) technology, NanoArc Synthesis, developed over the past two years and initially commercialized for the CMP market with Rodel, a division of Rohm & Haas Corp.
