Nanotechnology applied to improve quality of life.


Investigation and development

The R&D area of ​​Nanotek SA is located in the Litoral Centro Technology Park (PTLC), in Santa Fe. Its mission is to develop products and processes that have commercial viability. While mature products are being marketed, we are seeking to obtain new nanomaterials on an industrial scale and developing applications for them through strategic alliances with companies in different fields.

The only way to achieve meaningful change is by seeking new challenges and shaking up the status quo in the markets.

If you are looking to revolutionize your market with an innovative product, we offer Research and Development (R&D) services to help you.

Using expansive thinking and innovation as our trademark, we partner on R&D projects, developing solutions with our extensive knowledge in nanotechnology.


The company’s strategy is based on three pillars: thinking differently, generating knowledge, caring for the environment.

We think differently by looking at problems from outside the current paradigm, which is the only way to do different things to make them better. We generate knowledge synergistically through permanent interaction between the company and scientific and technical organizations. We take care of the environment by applying the principles of ecology to avoid the negative impacts of new materials on the environment.

Supported by this strategy, the core of our business is to use our experience to design processes and products whose differentiation and added value are based on the application of cutting-edge knowledge on nanoscience. In other words, our product is innovation.

R&D structure

The R&D area has specialists in chemistry and biotechnology and is directed by Engineer Gerardo Daniel López, founding partner of the company, to which he contributed the experience acquired in CONICET (National Council for Scientific and Technical Research) and in international coordination. of projects within the framework of the Ibero-American CYTED Program (Science and Technology for Development).


His scientific-technological production includes the authorship of eight books (published in Argentina; Brazil; Spain; Germany), more than one hundred scientific and technical publications, more than ninety presentations at National and International Congresses and ownership of Argentine Patent No. 245,220. record No. 320,752. He has received the WIPO Award (World Intellectual Property Organization) in 2007, in addition to other distinctions, such as the First REPSOL-YPF Award (2000) for Technological Innovation, the Ingeniero Sábato Award for Technological Development (2009), awarded by the National Technological University, the “Santafesino Distinguished 2012” award, awarded by the newspaper El Litoral. Since 2007 he has been a member of the Nanotechnologies Committee, in the Normalization Directorate of the Energy and Environment Management of IRAM (Argentine Institute for Standardization and Certification).
