Nacalai USA Signs Collaboration Agreement with Nano-C

San Diego, CA | Posted on February 4th, 2008

Nacalai USA, the San Diego, California-based life science reagent and chemical company, announced today that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with Westwood, Massachusetts-based Nano-C, Inc, a leading manufacturer of nanostructured carbon materials, to co-develop industrial scale use of HPLC technology for production of fullerenes and their chemical derivatives. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

As part of the agreement, Nacalai USA will provide Nano-C with its expertise in liquid chromatographic purification of fullerenes and other nanostructured carbon materials.

Fullerenes and other nanostructured carbon materials are expected to represent a significant part of the projected multi billion dollar nanotechnology market. These new materials have been proposed for a wide range of high-impact applications, ranging from alternative energy to new and improved medical therapies. However, commercial application has lagged due to current high manufacturing costs and the need to further modify the materials to meet specific application requirements.

"This is an exciting collaboration for us," commented Jing Xu, Ph.D, technology assessment consultant at Nacalai USA. "We see a broad range of applications and a huge market potential of fullerenes and derivatives of these nanostructured carbon materials. Together we can make these new materials much more affordable and thus remove a major hurdle in commercialization of nanotechnology."

Toshi Ono, vice president and COO of Nacalai USA and head of international business development of Nacalai Tesque, stated, "We are proud to announce the collaboration with Nano-C. Nacalai's collaboration with Nano-C demonstrates the depth of our capability in analytical and preparative liquid chromatography."
