Magtech is a new company active in the nanotechnology market. Founded in 2017 by young entrepreneurs, its goal is to provide customized services to the needs of customers who use magnetic nanoparticles in their studies and projects.
The magnetic nanoparticles produced can be applied in several areas. In the field of petroleum, they can act as viscosity regulators in drilling systems and sulfate removers in injection water. In the industry, they can integrate catalytic systems like support or active phase. Also, in the environmental area, as tracers of drainage and waste adsorbents. And, in biological systems, they have potential as an agent for both magnetic resonance imaging and heat generation in the cancer treatment by magnetic hyperthermia.
In addition to the company's attention in nanotechnology, Magtech encourages the development of new business and university-company interaction.
