Research Institution

The objective of this Phase I proposal is to develop novel decontaminating adsorbents based on Reactive Nanoparticle Technology to address chemical and biological threats. Nantek's reactive nanoparticles have demonstrated excellent results as reactivedecontaminants for of both chemical and biological agents. Building on this research and success, Nantek proposes development and extensive evaluation of non-toxic nanoparticle formulations to be used to decontaminate personnel, cargo and airspace. Ahand-portable prototype will be developed, various nanoparticle metal oxides and propellents will be evaluated as surface decontaminants against mimics of chemical and biological warfare agents. Thus, at the completion of Phase I, technical feasibilityfor the nanoscale metal-oxide based hand-portable waterless decontamination system for personnel, surfaces and airspace will be demonstrated.Successful completion of this research will lead to the development of emergency decontamination technologies toaddress contaminated airspace, personnel and surfaces for military and industrial applications.
