NNS Network Node Server (Cisco) ) has made an investment in the company NanoDynamics, Inc. from Buffalo, New York New York, state, United States
New York, Middle Atlantic state of the United States. It is bordered by Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and the Atlantic Ocean (E), New Jersey and Pennsylvania (S), Lakes Erie and Ontario and the Canadian province of . The company that was founded in March 2002 is a leading supplier of nanomaterials and of nanotechnology-enabled products. The participation represents a major success for Nanostart AG as the company was still given the chance to invest although the financing round was already completed.
NanoDynamics has developed platform synthesis technologies for nanosized metal and ceramic powders, as well as a novel process for affordable production of multiwall carbon nanotubes See nanotube. (CNT (Carbon NanoTube) See nanotube. ). The processes have already been scaled to commercial volumes for several products including nanosized silver which is of particular interest as an antimicrobial antimicrobial /an·ti·mi·cro·bi·al/ (-mi-kro´be-al)
1. killing microorganisms or suppressing their multiplication or growth.
2. an agent with such effects. additive additive
In foods, any of various chemical substances added to produce desirable effects. Additives include such substances as artificial or natural colourings and flavourings; stabilizers, emulsifiers, and thickeners; preservatives and humectants (moisture-retainers); and for paints, plastics, construction materials, and surfaces. It is also finding increasing use in the electronics industry for ink-jet printing of circuits and electromagnetic interference See EMI. shielding. NanoDynamics holds altogether over 60 patents and patent applications protecting its proprietary processes, materials, and end-products.
To successfully promote the commercialization of its technology, NanoDynamics has divided up its business into three areas "Materials", "Products" and "Innovations". The Materials division focuses on the production of nanoscale At nanometer size. Any device only a few nanometers in size is nanoscale. See nanotechnology and nanometer. materials and structures, the Products division goes on to convert these materials and structures into marketable applications for a broad range of industries, including the semiconductor and electronics industry, medical technology as well as the energy industry. For example, NanoDynamics produces portable fuel cells with a power capacity of between 50 and 250 watts. All the activities from the research and patents area have been pooled together by the management in the Innovations division. Through a combination of strategic partnering, custom product development, and out-licensing activities, the company is able to tap further earnings sources and increase the overall value of its investment in intellectual property.
"By making this investment in NanoDynamics, Nanostart AG will again be strengthening its presence in the USA and at the same time will be proving that it has access to the Top Names in the nanotechnology area", states Marco Beckmann, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization.

Although our current financing round had been oversubscribed Refers to connecting more users to a system than can be fully supported if all of them were using it at the same time. Networks and servers are almost always designed with some amount of oversubscription, counting on the fact that everybody does not need the service simultaneously. and was already completed, we saw significant strategic value in having Nanostart AG as one of our investors. We did all we could to make this possible and are now naturally very pleased to have Nanostart AG on our side as a very important European investor."
