NanoGraf Corporation

NanoGraf Corporation (formerly SiNode Systems) is the maker of an advanced battery material with applications from consumer electronics to electric vehicles.

NanoGraf’s proprietary silicon-graphene anodes for lithium-ion batteries demonstrate faster and longer charging capabilities for batteries, and use an earth-abundant form of carbon called graphene, which is derived from the same graphite material found in pencil lead.

The company was founded at Northwestern University as part of the NUvention series of courses offered by the Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. NUvention: Energy challenges groups of interdisciplinary students – with backgrounds in engineering, business, and law—to develop a compelling business case around University intellectual property.
