Size matters: Toronto startup plans to be ready when nanotech becomes `The Next Big Thing'
Just over a year old, the company was created using patented technology developed by University of Toronto chemistry professor Cynthia Goh. Producing tiny nano materials can be expensive. But Goh, the company's chief scientific officer, believes her company has discovered a way to create large commercial quantities of nanoparticles in a more cost-efficient way.
In the short term, the company is developing custom projects for clients including coatings for glass and steel with superior performance characteristics such as more strength and durability.
