9 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD00-114
Budget: 04/25/00 - 10/31/00

The objective of this Phase I proposal is to develop a solvent-free mobile reactor system capable of chemically destroying 4-6 L of chemical warfare agents and toxic materials. Nantek's reactive nanoparticle technology has demonstrated excellent results for ambient and elevated temperature decompositon of hazardous chemicals including warfare a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD98-038
Budget: 12/13/99 - 05/12/02

The development of a catalytic skin cream protectant for detoxifying multiple species of chemical warfare agents is of great interest to the military. In phase I, the feasibility of developing a polyoxometalate/reactive nanoparticle hybrid that is capable of detoxifying simulants of both mustard and nerve agent was demonstrated. Phase I resear...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-078
Budget: 12/06/99 - 06/09/00

The objective of this Phase I Research is to develop a lightweight, very strong nanoparticle-polymer composite. This material will be used in production of helmets and other protective gear. Nantek, Inc. will work on this project in cooperation with Gentex Co., a producer and supplier of protective equipment to the United States military. Meta...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Kansas State University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST98-003
Budget: 10/13/99 - 01/12/02

The objective of this effort is to develop a single formulation of nanoparticle metal oxide that is effective against biological pathogens, toxins, viruses and chemical agents in either dry or wet environments. The materials under study will include reactive nanoparticles, and their halogen adducts, as well as nanoparticles having catalytic coa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD98-038
Budget: 12/18/98 - 06/18/99

Catalytically reactive topical skin protectant (rTSP) for soldiers against chemical warfare agents will be developed based on two complimentary technologies. The first will be an outgrowth of nanoparticle metal oxides as destructive adsorbents, where catalytic action is facilitated by placing monolayers of catalytically active transition metal ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Kansas State University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST98-003
Budget: 07/09/98 - 09/17/99

The objective of this Phase I is to demonstrate the use of Reactive Nanoparticles (RNP) for the decontamination/sterilization of biological agents and their mimics. Recent studies have shown that RNPs are very effective for chemical agent decontamination at ambient or higher temperature. Examples include paraoxon, VX, half mustard and HD. RNP...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A96-143
Budget: 04/01/98 - 04/01/00

The potential for reactive nanoparticles (RNP) to destructively adsorb, that is, neutralize highly toxic substances, such as the nerve agents CA, GB, ED and VX, has been demonstrated in the laboratory. RNP represent a new class of nanoscale particles of metals or metal oxides, that differ from other nanoparticles in reactivity and cryst...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A94-087
Budget: 06/16/97 - 06/16/99

Destructive Adsorption Technology (DAT) synthesizes and uses reactive nanoparticles to detoxify highly hazardous materials, such as nerve and other chemical agents, insecticides, and chlorocarbons, such as poly-chlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Relatively non-toxic reclaimable by-products result. Reactive nanoparticles of selected metal oxides and...
