Speaker Biography (Bor Jang, PhD)
Bor Jang received his MS and PhD degrees in Materials Science from MIT. Dr. Jang is co-founder and CEO of Global Graphene Group (G3), the holding company of five subsidiaries: Nanotek Instruments, Inc., Angstron Materials Group, Taiwan Graphene Co., Honeycomb Battery Co., and Angstron Energy Co. Dr. Jang is a co-inventor of 450+ patents (issued or pending) among which 160 patents are related to graphene and 200 related to supercapacitors, batteries, and fuel cells. G3 is a global leader in the development and mass production of graphene materials. Dr. Jang is a pioneer in the field of graphene science and technology. In the last 14 years, graphene has become one of the most exciting topics in the field of nanotechnology. Dr. Jang is widely recognized as the first to successfully isolate single-layer and multi-layer pristine graphene sheets (patent application submitted in October 2002 and issued in 2006). Dr. Jang's research team has also contributed to the field of graphene and graphene-based energy storage technologies in the following aspects: (1) Began to work on the development of cost-effective processes for mass-producing graphene as early as 2003 and co-founded Angstron Materials, Inc. in 2007 to begin the work on mass production of graphene; (2) Have the world's first patents on graphene applications in hydrogen storage (2004), fuel cells (2005), supercapacitors (2006), and batteries (2007); (3) Have the world's first patents on graphene-containing polymer, metal, carbon, glass, and ceramic matrix composites (2002, 2005, 2006); (4) Co-invented the most widely used graphene production processes, such as chemical methods (2002, 2004), liquid phase exfoliation (2007), electrochemical method (2007), and supercritical fluid method (2006); (5) Dr. Jang's group published the first review article on the topics of graphene processing and composites (2008).
Company Profile (Angstron Materials)
View Angstron Materials Timeline
Established in 1997 and headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, Nanotek has been one of the companies on the forefront of the nanotechnology revolution. The company was founded by Dr. Bor Jang, a leading expert in the research and development of low-cost carbon nanomaterials, batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells with over 170 patents issued or pending. Nanotek has assembled a truly skilled workforce of engineers, chemists, and material scientists with the aim of bringing nanotechnology into everyday life. In 2007, Nanotek spun off a company, Angstron Materials, Inc., to develop and manufacture a cost-effective, high-performance, nano-scale material called nano graphene platelets. Angstron is currently the world's largest producer of both oxidized and pristine nano graphene platelets (NGPs).
