Nanotechnology in Industrial Application
Largely without the general public taking notice, a new material has taken hold in the field of nanotechnology: the Organic Nanometal:
A nano-metal: ORMECON®, a trademark now owned by Enthone (CooksonElectronics)..
ORMECON® is a synthetic polymer which displays metallic properties. At the same time it can also function as a catalyst and exhibits many further interesting properties.
Ormecon GmbH - since September 2008 a business of Enthone Inc. - produces its product as a solid with 10 nm sized particles. For industrial application it is usually dispersed in different media, e.g. water, polar and non-polar organic solvents or even in other polymers. The particle size can be varied between 10 and 100 nm depending on application.
In this case, what is generally still considered by the public to be only a vision, has in fact become a reality:
