Molekule is a San Francisco-based science and clean air company born of a father’s desire to alleviate his son’s debilitating asthma and allergy symptoms.
Molekule was created because Dr. Yogi Goswami realized that existing air purifier technology was outdated and ineffective and could not relieve his son’s Dilip’s asthma symptoms. An acclaimed clean energy scientist, Dr. Goswami spent over 20 years rethinking how air purifiers work and developing PECO, a revolutionary new technology that completely destroys all indoor pollutants.
While current air purifiers are essentially trying to catch pollutants in filters, Molekule uses nanotechnology to break down pollutants on a molecular level.
Having personally experienced the life-changing effects of this technology, Dr. Goswami’s children, Dilip Goswami, and Jaya Rao, worked with him to develop a consumer device in the hope that they can bring relief to as many people as possible.

Molekule’s patented technology, Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO), works at the molecular level to eliminate indoor air pollution. Take a deep breath and see what makes Molekule the first of its kind.
In 1995, Dr. Yogi Goswami’s notable career in solar energy collided with indoor air quality when his efforts to relieve his son’s debilitating asthma symptoms were met with frustration and disillusion. With a combination of nanotechnology, light and boundless determination, he developed a revolutionary new approach of eliminating indoor air pollution. After two decades of academic research, countless publications, and multiple patents, the technology behind Molekule was born.
Today, Dr. Goswami’s son, Dilip Goswami, has taken his father’s research a step further by creating a physical product in the hopes of helping millions of people breathe better and easier. With increasing industrialization and the effects of climate change, air quality is becoming a vitally important global issue. Dilip has enlisted some of the brightest minds in applied science, engineering, and design to bring Molekule to life. Come join us on our journey to help bring clean and healthy air to the world!

Founded by a family trying to address the adverse impacts of polluted air, Molekule was created with a goal of using the power of science to eliminate indoor air pollution around the world.
As a child, Dilip Goswami (CEO) suffered from debilitating asthma and allergies. Frustrated with the lack of available remedies for Dilip’s conditions, his father Dr. Yogi Goswami (Chief Scientist) turned to science to address a key culprit: dirty, unhealthy air. Through 20+ years of intense scientific research, Dr. Goswami and his team created a new breakthrough purification technology: PECO (Photo Electrochemical Oxidation), the technology that now powers all Molekule air purifiers.
Realizing the role that science played in her brother Dilip’s life, Jaya Rao (COO) also was inspired to share PECO technology with the world. Together, the sibling pair of Stanford-educated engineers co-launched Molekule in 2014. Now they, along with the entire Molekule team worldwide, are on a mission to harness the power of science to improve lives and solve some of the world’s greatest problems, beginning with indoor air pollution.
