ISTP welcomes NuMat Technologies

NuMat Technologies is a materials technology company committed to enabling fundamental performance shifts in the gas storage and separations industries. It is done by tailor-designing nanoporous materials, specifically Metal Organic Frameworks, for high-value applications which critically depend on material performance.


Founded in 2012, NuMat's unique capabilities are based on key technological advancements in the computational design and synthesis of nanoporous materials developed at the Snurr Research Group and the Hupp Group - world class computational chemistry and experimental chemistry groups based at Northwestern University.

Storing gases effectively requires porous materials with high surface areas. The highest surface area materials in the world are metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), which is NuMat's area of expertise.
