Thank you for visiting our CEN homepage.
Mesoporous silica nanoparticle technology, which is well known around the World and has many functions for numerous applications, is regarded as an emerging innovation by many scientists.
SMB, Smart Mesoporous Ball, the mesoporous silica nanoparticles produced by our company, has the following characteristics:
1) Three-dimensional pore structure
2) High surface area and pore volume with precise nanopore size
3) Bio-friendly process through biomineralization
4) Perfect spherical structure and sub-micron nanoparticle size
In addition, we introduced various sizes of SMBs by encapsulating multiple metal and organic nanoparticles in the pores by functionalizing nanotechnology.
Our pursuit of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) priority management would provide an assurance that CEN is the leading transformation partner to the global companies, investors, and governments pursuing a low-carbon and just economy, a true gamechanger.
We at CEN endeavor to become the global leader of advanced mesoporous materials and realize our dreams from creativity and incessant R&D.
We look forward to receiving your comments and invite you to contact us for more information.
Mesoporous nanoparticle is a new micron-sized (20~500㎚) material that has 2~50㎚ sized pores.
As a component of sand or glass, Silica (Silicon Dioxide/SiO₂) is the most prevalent element in the
Earth’s crust and is utilized in various industrial fields. Due to its mesoporous and nano sized
characteristics, having a rapid response, Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticle (MSN) is currently being
used in medical fields, cosmetics, and highly specialized fields. It is highly valued as it is currently
being sold in the United States.
According to recent news, in the medical field, it is used to treat Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
In order to treat brain diseases, the medical treatment has to penetrate through the brain.
However, common medical treatment cannot penetrate the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB).
But the MSN has an impressive ability to penetrate the BBB. Human bodies also show lower rejection
rates towards Silica.
Also, due to its mesoporous characteristics, doctors could insert medical cures into the nanoparticle.
So we believe that due to the ability of mass production, MSN will have a great impact in the medical
industry as it will play a great role in drug delivery systems.
And Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles could be utilized not only in bio industry but also in cosmetics,
specialized industry, fuel cell, rechargeable batteries, water purification, sterilization, and agriculture.
And currently we have developed a technology of inserting Iron (Zn), Manganese (Mn), Gold (Au),
Silver (Ag), Platinum (Pt), Palladium (Pd), Copper (Cu), Titanium Dioxide (TIO₂) into
Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles to create for the various catalysts.
And also due to its surface molecule functionalization, Mesoporous Silica Materials will be used
in the surface treatment industries such as antifouling paint and super-hydrophobic film.
In addition, Mesoporous Silica Materials are anticipated to be actively utilized in various industries
such as defense industry, membrane, plastic, specialized garments, noise shelter, insulation, and
special cosmetics due to its superior dispersibility.
In particular, SMBTM-MSN has the BET Surface Area more than 1,200 m² per 1 gram.
This is three times the size of a basketball playing ground, and the inner pore diameter (BJH) is
around 3.4 nm in size, furthermore, BJH Pore Volume is about 1.16cm³ per 1 gram which makes it
very suitable to accommodate molecules.
Therefore, the volume of the internal pores also has a feature that can store a large amount of
molecules inside the 1.16cm³ per gram.
The particle size of MSN can also be produced in a variety of 20 ~ 300nm.
The SMBTM-Numbers series has a structure that is encapsulated metal nanospheres
in the inner of mesoporous nanospheres to prevent leakage of metal nanospheres,
making complex with MSN.
Therefore, it has a feature of almost no loss of main functions such as surface area.
These characteristics and structures of SMBTM-MSN and SMBTM-Numbers are expected to play
a pioneering role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution by revolutionizing the catalysts and
new materials industries as well as the bio industry.
We stress that there is no company that mass-produces Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles (MSNs)
in a short period of time with small-scale facilities at a reasonable cost, instead of the conventional
high-pressure, high-temperature and physical manufacturing methods, since the material MCM-41
was developed by Mobil in the United States in 1991.
We wish, in the near future, to create Silica Valley in anyplace where companies who want to use
our advanced nano smart materials with world-net working partners and various nano related
research labs, start-up companies, and other venture companies and play a great role for
the better life of human being.
