Processing Technologiy specialist Nano One Materials Corp. announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has recently issued to Nano One U.S. Patent No. 9,159,999 entitled “Complexometric Precursor Formulation Methodology For Industrial Production Of Fine And Ultrafine Powders And Nanopowders Of Lithium Metal Oxides For Battery Applications”. This patent is specific to the formation of lithium metal oxides using the proprietary methods described in Nano One’s U.S.
“Nano One continues to extend its Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio,” stated Dr. Joseph Guy, Patent Agent and Director, “with recent filings in Canada, the United States, Europe, China, Japan and Korea.” Dr. Guy added that, “Nano One has established a strong early IP position with patents being issued and allowed, across the globe, that describe the reactor, the process, the lithium metal oxides and a battery incorporating these lithium metal oxides for the cathode.”
Dr. Stephen Campbell, who was recently appointed as Principal Scientist at Nano One, explained that, “Our patent portfolio is growing, demonstrating value in a high growth market to draw the attention of global players looking for strategic IP advantages. These patents issued quickly with only minor revisions, indicating a technological edge with freedom to operate and fertile ground to expand IP protection.”
