The article reports on the decision of the Oxford University's chemistry department in England to spin off its business unit called Oxford Advanced Surfaces, which specializes in functionalizing surfaces via chemically bound molecule-thick layers. CEO Marcelo Bravo offers a statement on the unit's technology. The proprietary coating technology allows reactive molecules to be controlled so that they can be applied safely and rapidly to modify the surface properties of a wide range of materials.
