We work with you to create the right materials for your needs.

Our Products

We specialize in the synthesis of endohedral fullerenes. We produce a range of endohedral metallofullerenes. We can work with our customers for the design of endohedral fullerenes containing one or more metal ions inside the fullerene cage. We produce endohedral nitrogen fullerenes such as N@C60 and N@C70, including isomerically enriched nitrogen species.

We also produce higher fullerenes and their derivatives at various purities.


About the Company

Designer Carbon Materials Ltd is developing advanced nanomaterials for a range of applications, including energy harvesting, bio-sensing and quantum nanoelectronics.

We are producing designer endohedral fullerene molecules with tailored electronic properties. Designer Carbon Materials Ltd is a spin-out company from the University of Oxford. It is based on research led by Professor Kyriakos Porfyrakis and his academic group of 12 researchers.


Our Technology

We have developed technology for the scaled-up production of endohedral fullerenes. Our patented arc-reactor system can bring endohedral metallofullerene production to the gram-scale and beyond, faster and more efficiently than conventional arc reactors. We have access to state-of-the-art facilities for the purification of a range of fullerene molecules, including endohedral metallofullerenes and endohedral nitrogen fullerenes.
