PoreXpert Ltd was set up to disseminate £4.5m of research into porous materials carried out at the University of Plymouth, UK. Its core activities are sales of the PoreXpert software, which is under constant development, and consultancy based on use of the software and expertise on the experimental measurements to generate data for the model.
The software is world-leading, patented and trademarked.
The company CEO, and main contact point, is Professor G. Peter Matthews, Emeritus Professor of Applied Physical Chemistry at the University of Plymouth (further details are on his university staff page).
Consultancy terms and conditions
PoreXpert is the world’s best inverse modelling software, and we have access, via arrangement with the University of Plymouth, to some very advanced instrumentation to characterize porous materials. These are used as required within consultancy. However, porous materials are very difficult to study and model, and that difficulty becomes un-manageable if we do not know all the details of the material we are modelling. The more information that goes in to the experimentation and modelling, the more benefit that comes out.
Therefore, in general, we will only commit to consultancy contracts where there is a non-disclosure agreement at the outset, allowing free flow of information about the material and in-depth discussion. We have signed many such non-disclosure agreements, and there has never been any breach of confidentiality, or leakage of the mass of commercially sensitive information that we have been given by our many clients. We are usually willing to carry out a limited proof of concept study free of charge. On the contract as a whole, payment terms are usually 30% in advance and 70% in completion.
