On August 1, 2016 – Merck announced the signing of a worldwide material supply and licensing agreement with the UK-based Nanoco Group – a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials. The license allows Merck to immediately start marketing Nanoco’s cadmium-free quantum dots and to ultimately establish its own production facility to meet growing market demand.
“The agreement is in line with Merck’s strategy to sustainably secure its position as the global market and technology leader in display materials. With cadmium-free quantum dots, a remarkable increase in the color range and a significant reduction in power consumption can be achieved. These cadmium-free quantum dots are eco-friendly and also complement our product portfolio for the display industry,” said Walter Galinat, member of the Merck Executive Board and CEO of Performance Materials. “The license agreement with Nanoco will strengthen our position in quantum materials research, for which we laid the foundations by acquiring Qlight Nanotech of Israel last year.”
