Nanomaterials R&D is a manufacturing company. It makes a broad spectrum of dispersive and pressed oxide nanomaterials. The company’s work directs the creation of nanopowders for research investigation.
We propose a series of materials with pre-determined characteristics (sizes, phase and chemical composition, surface state, kind and amounts of different dopants). There are very important for investigators in the next points:
- study of structural parameters in dependence on types of bulk and surface structure defects, chemical and phase composition, size factor, kind of active surface centres, nature and amounts of dopants, other;
- investigation of the influence of structural parameters on functional characteristics of these materials.
The technology of chemical co-precipitation uses for the synthesis of oxide materials. The different metal salts and agents-precipitators are used to obtain materials as in amorphous and crystalline states. A volume of synthesised product is closed to semi-industrial (up to 10 kg in the month) and easily can be updated to industrial scale.

A volume of synthesised product is closed to semi-industrial (up to 10 kg in the month) and easily can be updated to industrial scale. Materials based on zirconia with complex doping are more significant in company production, but other oxide materials are also available.
We propose dispersed nanopowders and pressed or ceramic nanomaterials (in tablet, plate or cylinder form). The uniaxial or high isostatic pressure (up to 5 MPa) is used for obtaining the pressed state. It allows expanding application of such materials in research works, particularly to investigate the influence of pressure on materials forming and sintering.
- We form nanopowders for scientific investigation of nanomaterials for broad tasks
- – ceramic technologies (press, casting, 3D-printing),
- – study of different dopants on sintering materials and their construction properties:
- – study of functional properties materials for catalysis, photocatalysis, hydrogen and other alternative energy, optics, magnetic, luminescent, or other applications, et.
- For order, we propose the creation and synthesis of oxide nanomaterials with necessary for investigators characteristics, chemical and phase compositions.
- The synthesis occurs in the chemical laboratory that certified according to quality standard ISO 9001:2015.
NRD won participation in the Horizon 2020 projects.
Researches of Nanomaterials R&D participate in the project 871284 H2020 Marie Curie SSHARE Self-sufficient humidity to electricity Innovative Radiant Adsorption System Toward Net Zero Energy Buildings, Programme “PEOPLE” – Call ID “H2020-MSCA-RISE-2019″. This project involves the participation of the following institutions: Universidade Lúsofona (Project Leader) from Portugal, NANOTECH Center, LISP, both from Ukraine, UIB from Spain. Furthermore, the project counts with following institutions as partners: IIPT, from Uzbekistan; NNRC, from Azerbaijan; TTV, Tajikistan.
This project aims to develop a novel type of Self-Sufficient Building Panels to meet low energy-consuming requirements for buildings. This integration imitates the sweat of living beings to cool or heat the indoor or outdoor environment, according to the user needs, by just using the atmospheric humidity as a source of thermal and electrical energy to power this panel.
Researches of Nanomaterials R&D participate in the project «Creation of innovative “humidity to electricity” renewable energy conversion technology towards sustainable energy challenge», acronym CATCHER, No101046307. This project approved in Pathfinder, a program from European Innovation Council that aims at identifying and supporting breakthrough technologies with the potential to scale up internationally . The project CATCHER aims to develop innovative technology to exploit the atmospheric humidity for direct conversion to the electricity, thus gain a new sustainable source of renewable energy. The project will be developed in collaboration of highly qualified teams from Portugal, Belgium, Austria, Spain and Poland.
