Innovations made at the size an atom
Resasco directed the University of Oklahoma research team that invented the "CoMoCAT" catalytic process and founded the company in 2001. He holds the Hilda and Douglas Bourne Chair of Chemical Engineering and a George Lynn Cross Research Professorship at OU.
"We are the only one in the world that can make this particular semiconducting type (of nanotechnology)," said Resaco, now the chief scientist for the Norman company.
SouthWest NanoTechnologies is expected to scale up its production of the nanotubes next spring when it opens a new 15,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in the Norman Business Park. The building will house two new reactors that will enable the company to produce one kilogram — roughly two pounds — of nanotubes per day.
