Computer Aided Design Applied to Advanced Materials
Nanostellar’s core Rational Design Methodology (RDM) technology unites three disciplines – computational nano-science, advanced synthetic chemistry, and characterization. This enables Nanostellar to gain a fundamental understanding of the surface chemistry and properties of nano-materials. This insight enables the Company to develop advanced catalysts on a recurrent, cost-effective basis.
Relative to catalysts developed using traditional laboratory-based research methods, the Company’s catalysts have been developed with superior performance, significantly shorter development time, and substantially lower development cost.
The company’s intellectual property covers materials, manufacturing methods, and coating processes. Its intellectual property assets are protected worldwide with 21 issued and 37 pending patents.
Nanoscience for Environmental Applications
Nanostellar develops nano-material catalysts for a broad range of markets. It is commercializing products for improved diesel catalytic converters and has a pipeline that targets applications in chemical production, fuel production, and waste heat recovery systems. Nanostellar has both issued and filed patents covering materials, systems, and processes. The company designs new catalysts using a proprietary technology platform based on Rational Design. This allows it to develop products significantly faster and more efficient than using traditional design methods.
