CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURE PURCHASE AGREEMENT


     This Convertible Debenture Purchase Agreement ("Agreement") is entered into as of this ____ day of ________, 2013, by and between Nocopi Technologies, Inc., a Maryland corporation (the "Company"), and ___________________ ("Lender").


     1.   Purchase and Sale of Debentures.


          1.1  Authorization. Pursuant to this Agreement, Company has authorized the issuance of (i) a Convertible Debenture more specifically described in Exhibit A (the "Debenture"), and (ii) a warrant more specifically described in Exhibit B (the "Warrant").


          1.2  Issuance and Sale of Securities. Subject to the terms and

conditions hereof, Company agrees to issue and sell to Lender, and Lender agrees to accept delivery from Company, of a Debenture and a Warrant.


          1.3  Repayment Terms/Conversion.  Outstanding principal and accrued

interest on the Debenture shall be fully due and payable in compliance with the terms set forth in the Debenture.  At Lender's option, on the Maturity Date (as defined in the Debenture), Lender may choose to have all or part of the outstanding principal and accrued interest owing to Lender repaid in shares of Common Stock of Company at a conversion rate equal to five cents ($0.05) per share, as adjusted pursuant to Section 2 (the “Conversion Price”).  In the event Lender chooses to convert all or part of the outstanding principal and accrued interest into Common Stock of Company, Lender shall give written notice to Company of such conversion no less than fifteen (15) business days prior to such conversion, and shall surrender the original Debenture to Company, after which Lender will have no further rights under the Debenture as to the converted principal and interest, except the right to receive certificates representing the Common Stock.


     2.   Adjustment of Exercise Price and Number of Shares.  The Conversion Price and the number of shares of Common Stock subject to the Debenture shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:


          2.1  Subdivision or Combination of Stock.  If at any time after the date of the Debenture Company shall subdivide its outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such issuance or subdivision shall be proportionately reduced.  If the outstanding shares of Common Stock of Company shall be combined into a smaller number of shares, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately increased.


          2.2  Minimal Adjustments. No adjustment in the Conversion Price and/or the number of shares of Common Stock subject to the Debenture need be made if such adjustment would result in a change in the Conversion Price of less than one cent ($0.01) or a change in the number of subject shares of less than one-tenth (1/10th) of a share.


          2.3  Certificate as to Adjustments.  Upon any adjustment of the Conversion Price hereunder, the Company will compute such adjustment and prepare and furnish to Lender a certificate setting forth such adjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.




     3.   Representations and Warranties of Company.  Company represents and warrants the following as of the date hereof:


          3.1  Organization and Standing.  Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Maryland and has all requisite corporate power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted.


          3.2  Authorization.  All corporate action on the part of Company, its officers and directors necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Debenture, and the Warrant has been or shall be taken, and this Agreement, the Debenture, and the Warrant, when executed and delivered, shall constitute the valid and legally binding obligations of Company, enforceable in accordance with their terms.


          3.3  Consents. No consent, approval, order or authorization of, or registration, qualification, designation, declaration or filing with any third party or any federal, state or local governmental authority on the part of Company is required in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated herein.


          3.4  No Conflicts.  Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Debenture, or the Warrant, by Company nor the consummation by Company of the transactions contemplated herein will (i) conflict with or result in any breach of any provision of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of Company, or (ii) violate in any material respect any statute, rule, regulation, order, writ, injunction, decree or arbitration award applicable to Company or its assets.


          3.5  Authorized Shares.  Until the later of the date on which (a) the Warrant has been exercised or has expired, or (b) the Maturity Date (as defined in the Debenture), Company shall maintain sufficient numbers of shares of authorized Common Stock to permit the full exercise of the Warrant and conversion of the Debenture.


     4.   Representations and Warranties of Lender. Lender represents and warrants to Company as follows:


          4.1  Authorization.  This Agreement, when executed and delivered by it, will constitute a valid and legally binding obligation of it, enforceable in accordance with its terms.


          4.2  Investment.  Lender is acquiring the Debenture to be sold by Company, the Warrant to be issued by Company, and any equity in Company which may be received therefrom for investment for its own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof in violation of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").  Lender understands that the Debenture to be sold by Company, the Warrant to be issued by Company, and any equity of Company to be purchased or received have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act, which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of the Lender's representations as expressed herein.  Lender has substantial experience in evaluating and investing in private placement transactions of securities in “penny stock” companies similar to Company so that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its investment in Company and




has the capacity to protect its own interests.  Company will use reasonable commercial efforts to register any shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the Debenture and/or the Warrant within six (6) months of issuance; however, Lender understands and agrees that Lender must bear the economic risk of this investment indefinitely unless such shares to be issued pursuant to the Warrant and Lender’s conversion rights under the Debenture are registered pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or an exemption from registration is available.


     5.   Default.


          5.1  Events of Default.  With respect to the Debenture, the Warrants, and this Agreement, the following events are "Events of Default":


               (a)  Default shall be made by Company in the payment of principal of or any interest on the Debenture after fifteen (15) business days' written notice from Lender following the date when the same is due and payable; or


               (b)  Default shall be made in the due performance or observance of any other material covenant, agreement or provision herein, or in the Debenture, or any Warrant, to be performed or observed by Company, and such default shall have continued for a period of thirty (30) business days after written notice thereof to Company from Lender; or


               (c)  Company shall be involved in financial difficulties as evidenced:


                    (i) by Company filing a petition in bankruptcy or for reorganization or for the adoption of an arrangement under the United States Bankruptcy Code (as now or in the future amended, the "Bankruptcy Code");


                    (ii) by Company making a general assignment for the

benefit of its creditors;


                    (iii) by Company consenting to the appointment of a receiver or trustee for all or a substantial part of the property of Company or approving as filed in good faith a petition filed against Company under the Bankruptcy Code; or


                    (iv) by the commencement of a proceeding or case, without the application or consent of Company, in any court of competent jurisdiction, seeking (i) its liquidation, reorganization, dissolution or winding-up, or the composition or readjustment of its debts, (ii) the appointment of a trustee, receiver, custodian, liquidator or the like of Company or of all or any substantial part of its assets, or (iii) similar relief in respect of Company under any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, winding-up or composition or adjustment of debts, and such proceeding or case set forth in (i), (ii), or (iii) above continues undismissed or uncontroverted, or an order, judgement or decree approving or ordering any of the foregoing being entered and continuing unstayed and in effect, for a period of sixty (60) business days.

Nocopi Technologies, Inc.

West Conshohocken, PA 19428

Attention: President


     The undersigned, ___________________ ("Purchaser"), intends to acquire ______________ shares of the Common Stock (the "Shares") of Nocopi Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") from Company pursuant to the exercise of a certain Warrant to purchase Shares held by Purchaser. The Shares will be issued to Purchaser in a transaction not involving a public offering and pursuant to an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act") and applicable state securities laws. In connection with such purchase and in order to comply with the exemptions from registration relied upon by the Company, Purchaser represents, warrants and agrees as follows:


     1.   Purchaser is acquiring the Shares for its own account, to hold for investment, and Purchaser shall not make any sale, transfer or other disposition of the Shares in violation of the 1933 Act or the General Rules and Regulations promulgated thereunder by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") or in violation of any applicable state securities law;


     2.  Purchaser has been advised that the Shares have not been registered under the 1933 Act or state securities laws on the ground that this transaction is exempt from registration, and that reliance by the Company on such exemptions is predicated in part on Purchaser's representations set forth in this letter;


     3. Purchaser has been informed that under the 1933 Act, the Shares must be held indefinitely unless it is subsequently registered under the 1933 Act or unless an exemption from such registration (such as Rule 144) is available with respect to any proposed transfer or disposition by Purchaser of the Shares;


     4.  The Company may refuse to permit Purchaser to sell, transfer or dispose of the Shares (except as permitted under Rule 144) unless there is in effect a registration statement under the 1933 Act and any applicable state securities laws covering such transfer, or unless Purchaser furnishes an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to counsel for the Company, to the effect that such registration is not required;


     5. Purchaser has invested in the securities of “penny stock” companies and acknowledges that it is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of its investment, and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the




investment in the Shares. Purchaser represents and warrants that it is an "accredited investor" within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D of the 1933 Act.  


6. Purchaser has received or has had full access to all information Purchaser considers necessary or appropriate to make an informed investment decision with respect to the Shares, and/or has a preexisting personal or business relationship with the Company or certain of its officers and directors of a nature and duration that enables Purchaser to be aware of the character, business acumen and financial circumstances of the Company and such persons.


     Purchaser also understands and agrees that, in addition to any legend required pursuant to applicable state securities laws, there will be placed on the certificate(s) for the Shares, or any substitutions therefor, legends stating in substance:


     "These securities have not been registered under the Securities

     Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), or any applicable state

     securities laws, and may not be sold, offered for sale or

     transferred unless such sale or transfer is in accordance with

     the registration requirements of such Act and applicable laws or

     an exemption from the registration requirements of such Act and

     applicable laws is available with respect thereto."


     Purchaser has carefully read this letter and has discussed its requirements and other applicable limitations upon Purchaser's resale of the Shares with Purchaser's counsel.


                                        Very truly yours,
