Graphonyx’s Material is > 99.9% Pure Carbon
Graphitic Nano Onions LLC (GNO), a privately held company, utilizes a proprietary process to create, in volume, a new form of highly graphitic structured carbon nano onion material called Graphonyx.
After nine years of extensive research (with the help of 11 different Universities, 2 Federal and 5 commercial nano research labs), GNO is now, for the first time, introducing into the market place this very novel, highly graphitic Carbon Nano Onion material. GNO has access to 22 carbon material patents by the Patent and Trademark Office of the United States, with 2 pending. GNO also has interest in international patents, with 1 application pending before the World Intellectual Property Organization.
The Graphonyx™ material consists of catalyst free spherical and polyhedral carbon nano onions (diameter of between 20-60 nm) with a carbon purity level of > 99.9%, and representing a different form of carbon fullerenes. Structurally, this onion-like nano material is composed of concentric graphitic layers with an increasing radius and an inter-layer distance of around 0.34 nm. An average of 3-5 of these onions are chained together to form the final structures
As the manufacturing process is easily scale-able, commercialization becomes economically feasible for a wide range of applications. GNO has also developed a post – production functionalization process, whereby high volumes of material can be synthesized to achieve specific material characteristics ( contact us for more information).
