Novarials has developed a series of unmatched carbon nanotube technologies, three revolutionary nanowire membrane platform technologies, one nanowire coating platform technology, and a series of nanowire manufacturing procedures. These technologies have significant commercial potentials in dozens of industries. We are offering these proprietary technologies for licensing.

1. Unmatched Carbon Nanotube Technologies

The founder of Novarials has been working on the research, development and commercialization of carbon nanotubes including multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) for over twenty years. He is the inventor of the first single-walled carbon nanotube forest (2004, three days before Kenji Hata’s Science paper). Novarials has developed the following unmatched carbon nanotube technologies:

2. Flexible/Bendable Ceramic Paper Membrane Platform Technology

By using our high quality and precisely engineered ceramic nanowires as building blocks, Novarials has developed an unprecedented Flexible/Bendable Ceramic Paper Membrane platform technology. Our flexible/bendable ceramic paper membranes are thin, porous membranes made of ceramic nanowires. They are flexible and bendable with a thickness from 10 microns to hundreds of microns and a pore size from a few nanometers to hundreds of nanometers. Novarials has achieved over a dozen of different flexible/bendable ceramic paper membranes including titanium oxide, aluminum oxide, vanadium oxide, magnesium oxide, tungsten oxide, manganese oxide, nickel oxide, iron oxide membranes, etc. These flexible/bendable ceramic paper membranes are expected to have huge potentials in dozens of industries, e.g., filtration and separation, thermal barriers, semiconductive network, etc.

3. Flexible Ceramic Hollow Fiber Membrane Platform Technology

Novarials has fabricated the world’s first flexible ceramic hollow fiber membranes by using our ceramic nanowires as building blocks.These flexible ceramic hollow fiber membranes are made of pure ceramic materials without any organic additives/binders. They are flexible/bendable with an outside diameter from 0.2 to 1.5mm and a pore size from 5nm to 500nm. With the advantages of great flexibility, small diameter, ultrahigh packing density, high filtration performance, high stability, simple fabrication, and low manufacturing cost, these flexible ceramic hollow fiber membranes will have the potential to address many tough separation and filtration challenges in a dozen of industries, e.g., water, chemical, oil, food, beverage, gas industries, etc. And also they can be used as porous support for dense membranes.

4. Ceramic Nanowire Battery Separator Platform Technology

Novarials has developed an unprecedented battery separator technology – ceramic nanowire battery separators. Our ceramic nanowire battery separators have following superior characteristics and properties:

A battery separator with these superior properties and performance is predicted to be the next generation high safety battery separator.

5. Inorganic Nanowire Coating Technology

Using our unprecedented inorganic nanowires, Novarials has developed a coating technology which can provide a thin layer of porous nanowire coating on other inorganic porous substrates with plate, tube or irregular surfaces.

Such a thin layer of porous nanowire coating can serve as:

6. Novel Sensor Matrix Technology

Novarials, leveraging its many years of research and development expertise on a variety of nanomaterials, has developed a novel sensor matrix technology based on our semiconducting nanowire and thiol-coated gold nanoparticle products. Thiol-coated gold nanoparticles are a new category of core/shell products with a gold nanoparticle core with a diameter of about 2 to 5 nm and an organic thiol shell with a thickness of between 0.3 to 3nm (adjustable level to 0.15nm). These core/shell nanomaterials as well as our semiconductor nanowires are considered as new families of sensor materials. It has been reported that these sensor products can realize ppm level sensing of toluene, acetone and aldehyde (cancer markers) at room temperature. Such a high sensitivity and low energy cost sensor system is the next generations of sensors for home diagnostics (early detection of cancers), Internet of Things as well as robot skins.

7. Inorganic Nanowire Manufacturing Technologies

Novarials has developed cost effective manufacturing procedures for our unprecedented inorganic nanomaterials. With the vision that these novel nanomaterials should be manufactured at a low cost in a large scale, we have developed proprietary procedures which are very cost effective and can be easily scaled up. The large scale commercial prices of these novel nanomaterials are slightly higher or comparable to the commercial commodities. These novel nanostructured materials will have wide applications with a market needs from kilograms to tons.
