Description: 

USC is a private research university located in Los Angeles, California. In addition to research groups on campus investigating nanomaterials, USC also has a subsidiary (MOSIS) within their Information Sciences Institute (ISI) that provides integrated circuit production services.

According to their California Department of Toxic Substances (CADTSC) round one call-in on carbon nanotubes (CNTs), USC manufactures and uses CNTs solely within USC for R&D and instructional purposes. According to their CADTSC round two call-in on quantum dots and nano metal/metal oxides, USC produces and purchases from commercial sources nanosilver, nano TiO2, nano ZiO2 and quantum dots (but not nano zero valent iron or nano CeO2) for R&D purposes within USC facilities. The nanomaterials are not employed for commercial applications.
