Northwestern nano startup tackles big problems at the smallest scale
February 08, 2019
EVANSTON, Ill.— Medill Reports Chicago looks at a class of nanomaterials called metal-organic frameworks (MOF), which have high-surface areas at the atomic level, and porous molecular structures that are optimal for gas storage and filtering out these impurities. Northwestern University startup NuMat Technologies is utilizing these structures and new technologies to solve “problems that matter.”
The International Institute for Nanotechnology at Northwestern University is an umbrella organization that represents and unites more than $1 billion in nanotechnology research, education and supporting infrastructure.
