Our History

SON is a start-up from Universtity of Burgundy and highlights years of research in chemistry from several laboratories (ICMUB and ICB). It is the fusion of two worlds « nanoparticles » and « organic chemistry » which makes the synthesis of our unique nanoparticles possible.

Our Purpose

Our goal is to guide manufacturers on the path of nanotechnologies in order to facilitate the integration and adoption of nanotechnologies in many fields (medical, environment and catalysis).

Our mission

SON is an engineering company that responds to new industry issues through a nanoparticle-type approach while preserving the resources that surround us.

Our vision
SON is a world manufacturer of reproducible, pure and highly characterized nanoparticles. Our skills in the design, manufacture and development of reproducible and pure nanoparticles encourage our vision « Cleanly make the tomorrow industrial product ».
