GCE Institute Co., Ltd.
The GCE Institute, which develops “alloy nanoparticles” that are the key to next-generation energy and advanced medicine, achieves about 100 times the amount generated per hour compared to last year – Succeeded in generating about 100 mg per hour, expected to be used in various scenes such as automobiles and electronic parts –
GCE Institute Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Hiroshi Goto) announced that the amount of alloy
nanoparticles developed by the company in August 2022 will be generated per hour in April 2021. We are pleased to inform you that we have reached 100 times the comparison.
While alloy nanoparticles, which are expected to be used in various applications, have been requested by customers in various fields, there was a problem that mass production was difficult due to the peculiarity of the production process. At the GCE Institute, we are proceeding with process development to meet the market needs for alloy nanoparticles. We succeeded in making it about 100 mg per dose. The alloy nanoparticles developed by the GCE Institute will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society, drug delivery systems, virus test reagents, new energy “ambient power generation” that can generate electricity as long as there is a heat source that we are developing. Applications in various fields are expected.
In the conventional production volume of nanoparticles, their applications were limited to research and development and medical fields such as drug delivery systems where use in small quantities was expected. It can be expanded to fields that require more
nanoparticles, such as semi-permanent power sources, “ambient power generation,” as well as other electronic components and catalysts. In order to utilize our alloy nanoparticles in a wider range of fields and contribute to the future society, we will continue to develop further, and in two years we will be able to generate 10,000 mg per hour (per laser), which is 100 times the current level. We will aim. What are nanoparticles
Nanoparticles refer to very small particles with a diameter of 100 nanometers (nm) or less. (1 nanometer = 1 billionth of a meter). Technologies that utilize nanoparticles are classified as
“nanotechnology”, and the research and application of various nanoparticles is increasing explosively. Among them, metal
nanoparticles are expected to be a catalyst for innovation in various industrial fields, and the global market is currently worth 3 trillion yen annually, and is expected to grow by about 16% annually. We are still in a transitional period. Specifically, we are making progress in research and development that contributes to the further
miniaturization and cost reduction of electronic devices such as smartphones, cosmetics and antibacterial technology, and a sustainable society.
Characteristics of “alloy nanoparticles” that combine the
characteristics of multiple metals, developed by the GCE Institute 1. It is expected to be used in a wide range of fields with the characteristics of multiple metals
At the GCE Institute, it is possible to synthesize not only
nanoparticles of the metals shown in the periodic table, but also alloy nanoparticles that combine the characteristics of multiple metals. In addition, the GCE Institute’s alloy nanoparticles are stable in dispersion state even when unmodified, making it possible to combine them with materials that were difficult in the past, so it is expected to be used in various scenes. increase.
2. High safety & continuous synthesis is possible
The alloy nanoparticles developed by the GCE Institute can be produced by simply irradiating a solution with a laser, unlike the method of producing by adding multiple chemical substances, so they are highly safe and can be synthesized continuously with the same quality. It is characterized by being able to Therefore, it is expected that a larger amount of alloy nanoparticles will be produced in the future. Generate power by effectively utilizing the heat around you! What is “ambient power generation” using alloy nanoparticles?
Nanoparticles are expected to be used in various ways, but they are also being used in a new power generation technology, GCE Institute’s unique “Ambient Power Generation”. Ambient power generation devices can make effective use of environmental heat such as room temperature and waste heat from power plants and factories, realizing a future where fuels and batteries are no longer needed. In the future, we will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society as a power source for various scenes in daily life, such as home appliances and automobiles, and as a self-sustaining power generator in developing countries.
