Cypriot Company Begins Mass Production of Nanotubes

09 November 2001

Cypriot company Rosseter has started production of nanotubes in bulk and at commercial prices. Rosseter, headed by a Russian scientist Vladislay Ryzhikov, announced the breakthrough in the research and development at a symposium in Japan earlier this month.

Rosseter, with its headquarter in Limassol town at the island's southern coast, was set up by a group of Cypriot businessmen in 1998.

Discovered in 1991, nanotubes are a new form of carbon after diamond and graphite. A nanotube is 50,000 times thinner than a human hair but 100 times stronger than steel at only one sixth of the weight. They are chemically inert, but have a high electrical and thermal conductivity.

Applications and products have been identified in many areas of industry, including micro-electronics, flat screens, fibre optics, superconductors, lubricants, avionics, telecoms, materials and coatings. According to the Cyprus Weekly, Rosseter, in parallel to its investment in capacity, plans to develop a global distribution network with a focus on large corporations in the electronics, materials and aerospace industries.
