What We Do
Advanced & Innovative Multifunctional Materials LLC
AIMM's expertise is in fabricating a tailorable, colossally porous; hierarchically porous carbon (HPC) material-as a scaffold for the impregnation of nano-material(s). The resulting 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 these unprecedented times 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 strive to bring simple, yet effective solutions to the masses through advanced science.
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.
