Rosseter Holdings, the Cyprus based producer of carbon nanotubes
and nanohorns are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor
David Tomanek as Chairman to the Rosseter board.
Professor David Tomanek, a Professor of Physics, is
a pioneer in the field of quantum phenomena modelling and is one
of the world's leading authorities on Nanotechnology. He has authored
and co-authored more than 150 publications in refereed journals
and holds several patents related to nanotechnology.
Rosseter, one of the world's largest producer of carbon
nanotubes, using its patented very low cost scalable process, will
benefit from Professor Tomanek's input into management, research
and development and introductions to potential major customers for
nanotubes around the world.
In recognition of the growing interest in nanotechnology and the
growing commercial applications, Rosseter, in conjunction with Professor
Tomanek, intend to host a symposium entitled "Commercialising
Nanotechnology", in Limassol, Cyprus between January 5-9, 2003.
The management of Rosseter, will be attending, the 'Investing in
Nanotechnology 2' conference organised by the Institute of Nanotechology
on Tuesday 19 March 2002 at the Royal Society 6 Carlton House Terrace,
Maria Xenophontos, Managing Director of Rosseter Holdings commented:
"The appointment of Professor Tomanek as Chairman will bring
to Rosseter a vast amount of experience in Nanotechnology and its
applications. This will further increase Rosseter's competitive
advantage at a time when nanotubes are undergoing the transition
from laboratory to commercial applications."
Professor David Tomanek, Chairman of Rosseter Holdings commented:"
I am very pleased to be joining Rosseter at this significant stage
of their development. As the nanotechnology sector expands into
commercial manufacturing we will see Rosseter at the epicentre of
Rosseter Holdings Ltd. is a Cyprus-based producer of carbon nanotubes
and related nanostructures. We seek to become the world leader in
manufacturing carbon nanostructures in bulk quantities at prices
that will open the nanotube market to large-scale commercial applications.
We utilize Rosseter proprietary technology based on the decomposition
of hydrocarbon liquids [PCT/IB00/00406 published in October, 2000].
The chemical reaction, running in a sub-critical mode, is controlled
by an auto-regulated arc-discharge. Since the energy for the synthesis
process is provided mostly by the reagents, the production is very
efficient and ideally scalable. With its external energy requirements
of only 20-100 kWh per kg of deposit produced, the process is inexpensive
and environmentally friendly.
Depending on synthesis conditions, we produce Multi-Wall Nanotubes
(MWNTs), carbon polyhedral particles (onions), Single-Wall Nanotubes
(SWNTs), Single-Wall Nano-Horns (SWNHs), and graphitic platelets.
Our current product palette contains five different raw carbon nanoproducts,
identified as Ros-1 to Ros-5, and described at http://www.e-nanoscience.com.
