Sponsorship from nanoXplore
The executive committee of the Fondation Lucien-Piché is proud to announce the addition of nanoXplore to its list of bronze sponsors. We would like to acknowledge them for their generous contribution and for supporting the training of the next generation of highly qualified chemists in the province of Quebec.
NanoXplore is a Montreal-based advanced materials company, the largest Canadian producer of graphene and one of the largest graphene producers in the world. We provide customers with graphene-enhanced polymers, including master batches in pellet form, few layer graphene powders, and custom graphene solutions. NanoXplore’s high quality graphene (i.e., high purity, with low defects) is very dispersible, enabling significant improvements with very small amounts of added graphene, typically less than 1% by weight. Our core technology is a unique, low-cost manufacturing process which produces industrial volumes of high quality graphene from graphite flake using a one-step and environmentally friendly method. NanoXplore’s ability to tailor the final properties of polymers by adding trace amount of graphene, paves the way for engineering plastics in real world products such as electric motors, electronic packaging, and thermal management solutions. Today we are supporting innovators in the plastic, rubber, performance clothing, paint, coating, and energy storage industries, helping to enhance the thermal, electrical, and physical characteristics of customers’ products, while replacing existing harmful and expensive additives.
About the Fondation Lucien-Piché:
The Fondation Lucien-Piché is a charitable non-profit registered organization which supports outstanding students in chemistry across the province of Quebec. Every year, the Foundation awards scholarships to the best finishing students enrolled in undergraduate chemistry programs. Since its creation in 1987, the Foundation has awarded more than 120 scholarships for a total of more than 100,000$.
