What We Do
Advanced & Innovative Multifunctional Materials LLC
AIMM's expertise is in fabricating a completely tailorable, colossally porous; hierarchically porous carbon (HPC) material-as a scaffold for the impregnation of nano-material(s). This resultant nanocomposite can be embedded with nano-materials for energy storage or for catalysis applications.
The primary thrust of AIMM is to embed our HPC scaffolds with biocidal nano-silver for point-of-use (POU), multi-functional water filtration. Due to the Corona virus pandemic we have expanded our focus to include enabling items such as N95 masks to have a self-disinfecting coating and be reusable!
At AIMM we are striving to bring simple, yet effective solutions to the masses through advanced science. We are using Multifunctional Materials to do this.
While obtaining a PhD in Materials Science & Engineering from Cornell University, Dr. Luis Estevez developed a novel nanocomposite materials platform based on porous carbon.
In addition to over a decade's experience designing multi-level tunable porosity in carbon materials, Dr. Estevez has managed various science and engineering projects such as spearheading a million dollar, 3-year DOE project to optimize his technology.
