Materials that Matter
At Advanced & Innovative Multifunctional Materials (AIMM), we take ordinary porous materials and make them antimicrobial. This has enabled us to concentrate on two initial thrusts: water purification and a self-disinfecting N95 mask. For water purification, AIMM is developing a filter that removes contaminants and disinfects without harsh tasting chemicals, resulting in clean water–all powered by gravity. For the self-disinfecting N95 mask, AIMM is prototyping an outer layer on the standard N95 mask that is antimicrobial–enabling the mask to be safely reusable.
The Coronavirus pandemic revealed a dire need for tech solutions for microscopic pathogens. At AIMM we're using our materials science expertise to enable anti-microbial coatings for plastics that activate with simple water.
Next Generation Technologies
AIMM’s expertise has been developed over the course of 10+ years in materials science research and enables us to take ordinary porous materials and make them effective at killing harmful microorganisms. To do this, we use our proprietary technology to attach well-dispersed, antimicrobial silver nanoparticles throughout the porous material.
