Porous Glass Microspheres.

Porous glass microspheres ranging from 60 microns to 350 microns in diameter that can be loaded with active or functional enties

About University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham produces world-changing research by focussing on the problems and challenges that affect societies and people on a wide scale. More than 80% of Nottingham research is ranked in the highest categories ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.

Tech Overview.

A team at the University of Nottingham have developed a scalable manufacturing process that is capable of producing unique spherical glass materials with a high degree porosity. The properties of the microspheres can be tailored to meet the users’ needs by adapting the manufacturing process and feed material composition. Porous glass materials potentially have significant utility in engineering, biotechnology and in healthcare where ongoing work has started to demonstrate the utility of calcium phosphate glasses in bone repair. The applicable base materials for the porous glass particles range from phosphates, silicates, borates and glass ceramics.

Glass microspheres can be produced via a patented procedure with properties tailored to the specific demands of the application.
