Most quantum-dots available today are extremely expensive and toxic. Our graphene quantum-dots are derived from coal by a cheap and efficient patented production process. Due to their source, the dots are water-soluble, nontoxic and resist photobleaching. This allow Dotznano to profitably penetrate the quantum dot market in several different applications.
Primary Application Area: Materials, Chemical
Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Value Proposition: While Dotznano GQD's are suitable for use in the conventional QD market (such as healthcare, displays, lighting, etc.) it is in the unconventional QD markets that Dotznano will make a high value proposition for the industry. It is in these lower end market that the cheaper and efficient Dotznano GQD's will have maximum affect such as laundry detergents, textiles, colors and paints, paper production, water management, security application, cosmetics, coatings and more. In this cases these low end markets, due to the high price of QDs, could not sustain using QDs in their production processes. In this light, Dotz GQDs will be able to penetrate these markets, due to the lower costs of coal derived GQDs. Due to a cheaper and more efficient production process, the market price for Dotznano's GQD's will be much cheaper than conventions QD production, allowing these lower end markets to utilize the advantages of GQD's without the toxicity or higher price.
