NANOGAP was founded in 2006 and is a spin-out from the University of Santiago de Compostela. The company is located near the University in the region of Galicia in northwestern Spain. In 2010, NANOGAP added an international presence with the creation of a US subsidiary in the San Francisco Bay Area. NANOGAP is a nanomaterial company based on the novel wet chemistry technology platform of Atomic Quantum Clusters (AQCs), a form of sub-nanometer particle which can be considered as a “metal molecule” composed of only a few atoms, with unique size and shape-dependent properties. AQCs serve as the basis of the different products commercialized and under development by NANOGAP. In addition to commercial products, NANOGAP routinely collaborates closely with customers in Custom Product Development projects and Out-License Agreements.
