Multinational Company Funds Fragrance Release Applications

NaturalNano's Extended Release Technology Wins Funded Innovation Award

ROCHESTER, NY | Posted on March 18th, 2008

NaturalNano, Inc. (OTCBB: NNAN) (FWB: N3N), a developer of advanced nanomaterials and extended release nanotechnologies, won an award for innovation from a global Fortune 500 company for its work in extended release. The award includes funding for development involving extended release of fragrances for use in home and personal care products.

NaturalNano ( said the award was based on tests conducted by the global consumer products giant and provides a path toward a joint product launch. Terms of the funding and the name of the corporate partner, one of the world's largest consumer products companies, were not disclosed for competitive reasons.

NaturalNano holds a partially exclusive license from the U.S. Department of the Navy's Naval Research Laboratory for the core technology used to load materials into nanotubes, which then releases those materials slowly over time. The innovation award includes funding for a project that uses this extended release capability to allow consumer products to have longer lasting fragrances.

"Extended-release products are being embraced by some of the world's leading consumer products companies, and NaturalNano continues to lead in the development of this technology," said Cathy Fleischer, President of NaturalNano. "This funding award for new product development is a strong endorsement of our technology and our commercialization plan. By continuing to build relationships, execute joint development agreements and facilitate innovative products with industry leaders, we are working to bring a filled-tube product to market, broadening our product offerings beyond our Pleximerô nanocomposite additive, which we introduced last year."

NaturalNano noted that the focus of their work under the innovation award is to continue development of fragrance-loaded tubes that will be added to products within the manufacturer's new product development programs. In addition, the Company also said that this relationship will enable multiple competitive inroads for household products, as well as other market segments such as cosmetics and the growing field of cosmeceuticals, in addition to other exciting markets.

Fleischer concluded: "We are truly creating the next generation of consumer products leveraging our extended release technology and development expertise. We are excited about the market potential of filled-tube-enhanced products, and look forward to developing additional partnerships and validation programs with other leading companies."
