About the Company

Well, someday I will have to leave this world. And when that day comes,
I want to feel that my life has been of some service to my fellow man.

- G. W. Carver

525 Solutions is a research and development (R&D) company that focuses on developing proprietary, broad-based ionic liquid technologies applicable in medicinal, pharmaceutical, and materials fields. Our business model is built around technology development and licensing.

The name "525 Solutions" came from the scientific color "code", or green light wavelength. Our eyes are sensitive to light which lies in a small region of the electromagnetic spectrum (labeled "visible light"). A color range of violet through red (people call it rainbow) lies in a wavelength of 400 - 700 nanometers. The visible green light has a wavelength of about 500-550 nm. This said, "525 Solutions" means "Green Solutions" or "Green Technologies". Here is why.


Our Mission: 525 Solutions has chosen to let the concepts of Green Chemistry guide its research and development, but not to define what the company is. Hence, currently 525 Solutions' focus is on the translational research, the development of technologies from a laboratory to a commercial level. We are developing sustainable industrial processes, where pure fundamental science is transformed into a variety of socially and commercially significant applications. Currently 525's mission is to become the world's leading research and development entity in novel chitin-based technologies, designed and tailored to enhance the quality of human life. While 525 Solutions does not consider chitin as an answer to every problem, it is one tool to attack societies most challenging problems.
