Abstract:
The new Nanochemistry Laboratory is located at the Institut de Science et d'Ingenierie Supramoleculaires (ISIS) of the University of Strasbourg, France and will be headed by Dr. Nina Matoussevitch, an experienced Nanochemist. Dr. Matoussevitch's lab will work closely with Strem's US facility and Prof. Dr. Helmut Boennemann, Strem's nanoconsultant. The goal of the new facility will be to serve R&D groups worldwide with custom-made nanostructured materials.

Strem Chemicals Expands Nanomaterials Initiative

Strasbourg, France | Posted on December 2nd, 2008

Strem's nanomaterials manufacturing activities began in 2004 when it licensed technology developed by Prof. Dr. Boennemann at the Max-Planck Institute in Germany. This technology allowed for the manufacture of a variety of metal-based nanoparticles including colloids and magnetic fluids.

Strem's product offering now includes nanoparticles of many transition metals, precious metals as well as metal oxides, mixed-metal oxides and magnetic fluids. These are provided in a number of different shapes, such as gold nanospheres and gold nanorods and with a variety of surface coatings. Nanoparticle sizes range from 1nm gold which has been shown to be toxic to cancer cells, to 90nm. Nanocatalysts are also available.

Strem has also recently enhanced its web site and made nanomaterials information more readily accessible. The site's technical content has been enhanced to include MSDS sheets and Certificates of Analysis. Additional product resources have been added highlighting applications and literature references. On-line ordering, quote requests and literature request may also be made on-line.
