Expertise & Capabilities

Numat’s expertise and capabilities underpin our
ability to deliver MOF-based solutions at scale.

MOF market leaders

Numat is the market leader in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), a transformative precision chemistry platform which can capture hazardous chemicals with incredible precision, enabling performance not previously possible in critical industrial products and processes. We are a team of chemists, engineers and relationship-builders with an unwavering passion to sustainably improve human health and the environment through innovations in chemistry. Through ingenuity and science-led innovation, we specialize in identifying the ideal MOF for the right application and delivering transformative solutions at scale.

We design with intent, from morphology to functionality, enabling optimized interactions at the smallest level. We’ve applied our design and functionalization know-how of MOFs to other classes of chemistries, building a broad and proprietary toolkit of chemistries best suited to drive impact at scale.

Core Capabilities

Capabilities powering platform advantage

Data driving edge

We believe that continual generation of high fidelity data creates competitive advantage: increasing the speed and efficacy of our platform to reach targeted product results. We aggregate and use this data to understand what variables drive performance within an application, and identify fundamental relationships that hold across all applications.

Infrastructure accelerating commercialization

Today, we operate the world’s only ISO 9001:2015 certified facility for the final assembly of MOF products sold into leading edge industrial applications. In 2024, Numat is relocating its headquarters to a former foundry in Chicago, being repurposed to a state-of-the art nanofabrication and manufacturing center of excellence.

People powering innovation

At Numat, we’re focused on building the solutions driving tomorrow; we do this by leveraging our advanced chemistry platforms and considerable ingenuity. We are united by a passion to sustainably improve the human condition through innovations in chemistry, and by the belief that many of humanity’s most pressing challenges can be solved at the smallest possible level. Our experienced team spans multiple disciplines from diverse industries, enabling continuous innovation and empowering new ways of thinking.

Partnerships driving scale

Our greatest success has come through partnerships, where we’ve leveraged elements of our platform to develop highly integrated solutions with customers and partners, tapping into their core capabilities and infrastructure to create shared value at scale. These partnerships create competitive advantage and drive scale in multiple end-markets.
