Cameron Chai catches up Ephraim Honig from Strem
Chemicals to see what new developments and products have recently
become available at Strem
who are making big strides into the field of nanomaterials.
Since having spoken to Ephraim at MS&T’07,
Strem have expanded their offerings to include over 4000 products, of which
more than 70 are nanomaterials.
Some of their most recent additions include:
- Lead-free environmentally-friendly palladium nanocatalysts developed by BASF
- Platelet Graphitic Nanofibers (PGNF) consisting of graphene sheets that
layers in the direction perpendicular to the axis of the fiber
Ephraim explains some of the interesting properties of these materials as well
as their applications and advantages.
“We have a variety of shapes including spheres, sheets, rods,
stars and necklaces. It almost sounds like a design company, but we’re
really a chemical company.”
