TOPIC: Two Dimensional Material Nanomaterials and Applications
A synopsis of nanotechnology processes and applications will be given with a focus on Two Dimensional Material (TDM™). Lightyear Technologies is the proprietor and manufacturer of TDM. TDM results from a novel method of production within the realm of nanomaterials. It is made of one molecule thick sheets that are self-dispersing, flexible, semi-conducting, and corrosion resistant.
Applications for TDM include nickel metal hydride batteries, water purification, oil and gas catalysts, and hydrogen storage materials. These applications of TDM are just some of the developments emerging from the research. A description of two-dimensional material and how it can be applied in these various applications will be described.
