New Company Registered

Synthodics Ltd was registered on 17 June 2011.

This new spin-out company was formed to commercialise intellectual property arising from a research programme at Massey University led by Simon Hall.

Since September 2009, Simon had been working withhis colleagues, Mark Waterland (MacDiarmid Institute Associate Investigator) and Gareth Rowlands, on some new concepts for use in energy storage applications.  The research is funded though Simon’s MacDiarmid Institute Principal Investigator research allocation.

Massey University’s commercialisation partner, The Bio Commerce Centre, took the lead in the formation of the company and will assist with market development.

Two MacDiarmid Institute-funded PhD students, Kelsey Mortensen BSc(Hons) Massey and Ryan Ennis BE(Hons) Massey, have commenced their research on this project.
