Angstron Materials awarded a new patent for an NGP production method

Angstron Materials have been awarded a new patent (US #8,114,373) for its next-step method that effectively exfoliates layered graphene and offers several key advantages. Using this method one can produce nano graphene platelets (NGPs) with a thickness thinner than 100nm and in many cases thinner than 10 nm or as thin as 0.34 nm to 1.02 nm.

Angstron's process does not use undesirable chemicals, time-intensive wash steps or require high exfoliation temperatures. In addition, the method does not produce contaminated waste water and its associated disposal costs.
