LNKChemsolutions is a group of engineers who are experts in the field of novel nanostructured materials. Together, they provide nanotech solutions to meet new product performance challenges and create proprietary nanofiber design technology. Founded in 2000 by Gustavo Larsen, Ph.D., professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, LNKChemsolutions has core competencies in nanoparticle and nanofiber research and development for a variety of applications such as toxicology, tissue engineering, encapsulation and controlled release.
LNKChemsolutions has received contracts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and Kraft Foods to develop new nanotechnology products. After transforming the company from a consulting role in 2010, LNKChemsolutions has grown from three to 10 employees. Dr. Larsen says he is expanding the company internationally with a partnership in Argentina.
