Technology

NanoActive® metal oxides are a proprietary line of materials with synthesis methods designed to enhance adsorption kinetics, chemical reactivity, and safety of nanocrystalline forms of earth minerals for the destruction of toxic and noxious materials, including air and water pollutants, hazardous chemicals, biological organisms, odors and chemical warfare agents. Marketed under the brand name NanoActive®, these materials are differentiated by their chemical and physical properties:

  • HIGH SURFACE AREA allows for more surface-chemical interaction (Play Animation)
  • SMALL CRYSTALLITE SIZES results in more effective active sites
  • UNIQUE MORPHOLOGY takes advantage of chemical reactivity
  • LARGE PORE VOLUME for internal and external reactions to take place

Our NanoActive Materials are non-toxic, non-corrosive, and environmentally friendly. Advantages of using NanoActive metal oxides include:

  • Increased chemical and biological reactivity
  • Increased chemical selectivity
  • Containment and destruction of chemical and biological hazards
  • Safe, non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-flammable formulations
  • Effective over a wide range of temperatures and environmental conditions
  • Availability in powder, suspension, and granular forms
  • Many times the surface area of commercial grade metal oxides
  • Large pores allowing many surface active sites to be used during chemical reactions
  • Benefits of nanocrystalline chemistry in safe micron sized particles
