VISION CASANS will be a long-term,
multidisciplinary and collaborative RD center
located at Montana Tech and The University of
Montana to help build Montanas future and honor
its heritage by expanding further into
supramolecular and nano systems. MISSION The
goals of CASANS are to (1) provide the
infrastructure for improved RD activities in
these systems, (2) enhance and initiate new
activities in these systems, (3) apply these
systems to historical and emerging fields and (4)
expand existing, attract outside, and start new
businesses in Butte, Missoula, SW Montana and The
State of Montana.

    technologies through individual and team efforts
    with others at participating universities,
    companies, centers and laboratories ranging from
    local to international arenas
  • Be a global collaborative effort involving the
    interaction of investigators with increased
    numbers of graduate and undergraduate students as
    well as post-doctorates and visiting scholars
  • Enhance professional development of all
    participants and synergistically affect student
  • Have K-12 outreach through classroom
    demonstrations, student science fair support, and
    teacher research experience

SUPPORT Federal earmark of 5.0M in 2006, 2.0M
in 2007 and 1.0M in 2008 has been requested to
acquire key personnel and procure workhorse
equipment such as Transmission Electron
Microscope (TEM), Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM),
Raman and FTIR Spectrometers, and Nanoscale
Hardness Testers, to name a few, which are deemed
critical to making CASANS internationally
competitive. Another 7M is requested to work
with U of New Orleans and Grambling
University. When the initial three-year
investment ends, CASANS will be fully supported
by traditional means participating individuals,
industries and centers associated
collaborations patents and royalties local,
state and federal grants competitive RD
activities, etc.

CONCLUSIONS Markets in supramolecular and nano
systems are expected to be one of the prime
industries of the future and to have even more
significant impacts on day-to-day life than the
computer industry has had during the last 20
years. Clearly, Montana Tech, The University of
Montana, and their students would benefit along
with Butte, Missoula, SW Montana, and The State
of Montana. Montana Tech Contact Dr. Courtney

What is Nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology is the creation of functional
materials, devices and systems through control of
matter on the nanometer length scale (1-100
nanometers) and exploitation of novel phenomena
and properties (physical, chemical, biological,
mechanical, electrical...) at that scale. For
comparison, 10 nanometers is 1000 times smaller
than the diameter of a human hair. A scientific
and technical revolution has just begun based
upon the ability to systematically organize and
manipulate matter at the nanoscale. Payoff is
anticipated within the next 10 years. Montana is
part of this movement but needs to grow

Recognition Technology (Supramolecular) Ed
Rosenberg Research sponsored by Purity Systems
Inc. (PSI), has resulted in a new class of
silica-polyamine composite materials (U.S. Patent
No. 5,695,882) which offer distinct advantages
over existing technologies for a full range of
metal recovery applications. These composite
materials, like chelator resins based on
polystyrene, are selective for toxic and valuable
heavy metals (Cu, Pb, Hg, Cd, etc.) while leaving
non-toxic and healthful metals (Ca, Mg, etc.)
untouched. However, PSIs materials have longer
usable lifetimes, are cheaper to produce, and
have much higher dynamic capacities than
competitive materials. They can replace solvent
extraction processes for the recovery of Cu in
the presence of Fe, Al, Zn and Mn. Toxic heavy
metals, such as Hg and Pb, can also be reduced to
safe levels, lt1 ppb, at the cost of less than one
U.S. penny per liter.
