University of Oklahoma : Carbon Nanotube Technology Center ( CaNTeC )

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) are exceptional materials with unmatched electrical, thermal, mechanical, and optical properties. The combination of extraordinary length-to-diameter ratio coupled with its exceptionally high thermal and electrical conductivity as well as its mechanical strength make this material unique. The University of Oklahoma (OU) has a technological advantage in the production of SWNT, via the use of a proprietary catalyst and a truly scalable production process (6 key patents issued, strong position in the IP field). Based on this novel technology, an OU startup company (South-West Nanotechnologies, SWeNT) is developing a large-scale process (CoMoCAT) that will greatly increase the availability of SWNT of the highest quality.
