Zyvex is an early stage (as of 2005) nanotechnology company located in Richardson, Texas. It was founded by James R. Von Ehr II in 1997 as the first molecular-nanotechnology company.

Zyvex is currently (as of 2005) targeting specific applications in the aerospace, defense, electronics, telecommunications and medical industries. The short- to intermediate-term goal is to exploit the major improvements--often 10 to 1,000 times better than existing technology--offered by today's early-stage nanotechnology developments. The long-term goal has previously been stated to be to create a full-fledged general assembler.

In 2001, NIST awarded Zyvex a $25 million research program to accelerate the production and commercialization of low-cost assemblers for micro- and nanoscale components and subsystems. Zyvex claims to be one of the few nanotechnology businesses that generate revenue (as of 2005).
