Outline

Porous material composed of nano/micro scale pores, is applied as a high-performance sustained-release diffuser for medical/aroma equipment, jewelry, or others. The pore diameter can be optimized according to the application; a high void space up to 85% of the total volume can store ample samples; the skeleton is made of > 99.9% pure silica; it can deliver high performance. In addition, when the void space is filled with oil, light reflection is significantly reduced and its color alters from opaque to transparent and seems like transforming into crystal (Quartz): thus, named PorousQuartz®.
