Nitta Makes New Development in Proprietary CNT Dispersion Technology

Nitta Corp. (TYO:5186) has recently developed new technology to be applied as part of the company’s proprietary carbon nanotube (CNT) dispersion technology. The new technology improves flow, conductivity and film strength by taking elongated, isolated and dispersed CNTs and turning these into round cotton ball-like shapes. As it improves in usability, Nitta’s new technology is expected to find an expanded...

Zeon, AIST Show Biodegradability of SG-CNT

Zeon Corp. (TYO:4205) and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have announced research findings revealing that super-growth single-walled carbon nanotubes (SG-CNT) are biodegradable inside immune cells. Zeon and AIST have developed a technology that exploits the tendency for carbon nanotubes (CNT) to absorb near-infrared light in order to quantify the amount absorbed within the cell. SG-CNT...
