Metallic Nanoparticles

The nano-cooper, over the last few years, has been the nanoparticle that received the greatest dedication in researches and commercial efforts due its vast combination, breadth of characteristics and applications for the most diverse industrial sectors:

Nano-Cooper is bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal; can be incorporated into polymeric or non-polymeric materials, in order to give them a biocidal effect, protecting all its users against the action of these pathogens. Simultaneously, due to its biocidal characteristic, it also ends up acting as a preservative of the products in which it is applied as it does not allow the growth or development of fungi and bacteria, increasing its shelf life. Then, the nano-cooper becomes an exceptional solution for food preservation, through the use of packaging with its application. It is also a powerful anti-corrosive that can be applied in paints, resins or coverings for electrical equipment. The lifespan of a nano-cooper-protected product is extended by at least three times more than its original and also longer than those which are protected by chemical formulations that, in general, have a high toxicity index.

The Cooper itself is an essential metal for the human body, being an active natural element in the process of cell multiplication and activator of collagen production. Thus, the intelligent use of its nanoparticles aids human health and care processes. Moreover, it is an antiseptic and a natural healing agent, which supports the recovery of wounds and is being studied with very expressive results in the treatment of breast cancer. Major international companies in the cosmetic industries are already using the nano-cooper in their formulations as an anti wrinkle and anti aging agent. In addition to the uses described above and many others not mentioned here, the nano-cooper is also an important conductive agent to be used in the electronics industry.

A very small percentage of copper nanoparticles in the products in which they are used is sufficient to give them all the characteristics mentioned above, making their application efficient and economical.

non-metallic nanoparticles

Nanocellulose,or nano fibrillated cellulose (NFC), has,as its main property, the increase of the final rigidity of a mixture, without affecting its rheological characteristics. The addition of nano-cellulosic particles to a product can increase its resistance by 40% or allow the amount of the main raw material to be reduced by this percentage, without reducing its original resistance. The need to add NFC’s is very low to significantly affect the physical and mechanical properties resulting in a thermoplastic, thermoset or less permeable elastomer and increasing its durability. 

The normal diameter of a NFC varies between 5 and 60 nanometers, with the length of several micrometers. It is also a biodegradable material and more resistant than some metals, having an elastic modulus greater than 130 GPa.

Nanobubbles are like ordinary bubbles reduced to nanometric sizes.

Behavior of nanobubbles, which carries positive and negative ionic charges, attracting and repelling each other, hence, staying longer in the aqueous medium than a normal bubble.

The reduced and stabilized nanobubbles in these dimensions conduct gases or actives ingredients, as a vehicle, conducting and incorporating them into the target environment with an effectiveness far superior to their non-nanometric counterparts.

As an example, ozone nanobubbles offers a much more economical solution for the treatment of water, especially that of industrial effluents, compared to ozone itself.

The use of nanobubbles allows the reduction of equipment dimensions and the amount of ozone required to be injected into the liquid environment to meet its objectives of reducing COD, BOD, turbidity and coloring.

Morphology of Nano Calcium.

As well as other nanoparticles, the nano calcium demonstrates a high efficiency compared to solutions known nowaday, mostly provided by Calcium, like its carbonate. Its nanometry provides  a greater range of occupation of contact surfaces where it is inserted, with a much smaller amount of it, potentiating its expected effects.


There are many benefits arising from nano calcium: the increase in tensile strength and the impact resistance in polymeric materials, rubbers, fabrics, papers and other materials.

The nano calcium is also a powerful ally in the removal of heavy metals in wastewater; an excellent soil acidity neutralizer and PH corrector; improves the cleaning action of soaps and detergents, due to an adequate degree of abrasiveness; provides greater hiding power, increasing the yield in high-quality, synthetic oil paints and other coatings – in addition to being used to improve the yield of all types of food.

Probably, Nanotec is today, the only company in the world capable of producing nano calcium, in industrial volumes, from renewable resources, as it has developed production technology from eggshells, instead of limestone, which is obtained through a mining process, that has exploratory and finite nature.

nanoencapsulated liposomes

Lipomize already has available for sale a series of active drug ingredients, which aims at the oncologic area and antibiotics. The main goal of drug development is the technological transfer of the manufacturing process and the product quality scheme. This information is compiled and described by preparing the Module 3 CTD format (common technical document). Subsequently, and in a joint decision with the client, pre-clinical and clinical studies are developed and carried out to be compiled according to the CTD format (pre-clinical, module 4 and clinical, module 5). Finally, the transfer is completed through production scheduling and assistance in preparing pilot batches and registering at the factory to produce the finished product.

A vast specialized literature demonstrates that liposomal formulations in nutraceutical formulations possess the power to generate a greater intake or entry of the active ingredient, from the intestinal lumen into the bloodstream when compared to its non-liposomal equivalent.


Lipomize custom develops and manufactures liposomal products, under the concept of Private Label, concentrated / finished products for use by customers with their brand.

Some liposomal formulations available for sale:

  • Liposomal vitamin B12;
  • Coenzyme Q10 in the lipid complex;
  • Astaxanthin in the lipid complex;
  • Liposomal Hydrolyzed Collagen;
  • Liposomal oral rehydration salts.

In cosmetics, liposomes have been shown (similar to other types of micro-nano lipid microdevices) to provide greater penetration to the active ingredient, which reaches deeper layers of the skin when compared to conventional formulations. This effect, in literature, is described in two clinical studies, which were conducted for liposomal hyaluronic acid and liposomal ampelopsin formulations, managed by Lipomize. On the other hand, also described in the literature, phospholipids act as moisturizers and natural repairers for damaged skin. In other words, phospholipids, in addition to forming the liposomal membrane, are an active ingredient in their own right in Lipomize formulations.

Hyaluronic acid molecule.

Lipomize has developed a wide range of liposomal products for the cosmetic area ,additionally to developing and manufacturing, on demand, liposomal active ingredients to be used as raw material in the elaboration of its customers’ finished products (creams, gels, lotions, etc. .)
