High-strength and Corrosion Resistant Alloy for Patient-Specific Bioresorbable Bone Fixation Hardware
TS-042526 — Novel ternary and quaternary Mg-Zn-Ca-based alloys and a heat treatment process for producing bioresorbable bone fixation implants with improved mechanical and corrosion properties
Mg-Zn-Ca-based alloys are the most promising alloy system for bone implant applications mainly due to their superior biocompatibility. For fixation applications, the ideal is a material strong enough to hold while healing (2-4 months) yet being fully resorbed after the bones have healed (6-24 mont…

Electrolyte to Enable Reversible Dendrite-Free Potassium Plating and Stripping for Potassium Secondary Batteries
TS-037854 — A novel electrolyte to prevent dendrite growth in potassium air batteries.
The Need Potassium-air batteries have recently emerged as alternative energy storage devices beyond lithium-ion batteries. However, potassium metal anodes suffer from poor reversibility during plating and stripping processes due to their high reactivity and unstable solid electrolyte interphase (SE…

Immobilization of Biomolecules (Rubisco) by Self-Assembled Nanostructures
TS-037787 — Nanostructures that enhance the stability of biocatalysts that permit them to be utilized in scalable CO2 conversion processes
Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) are the two most abundant greenhouse gasses, trapping thermal radiation close to the earth's atmosphere and contributing to climate change. These two gasses contributed up to 92% of all the greenhouse gas emissions in 2015 (epa.gov). From an industrial pe…

Nanopump Separation Device and Method
TS-037584 — A device for separating macromolecules in a solution of macromolecules having different molecular sizes
Many clinical and research applications involve separation of specific biological molecules, such as nucleic acids and proteins, for further analysis and characterization. A complex biological system can only be understood after each component has been separately analyzed, and proteins must be pur…

A Gas-Assisted Resin Injection Technique for Bonding and Surface Modification of Microfluidic Devices
TS-037577 — A new resin gas-assisted injection technique, which can achieve both bonding and surface modification of microfluidic devices
The application of microfluidic platforms is limited because the materials and production methods are too expensive, and the material properties induce problems, such as a lack of optical clarity and low impact strength. Packaging (i.e. sealing a device with a lid) is also a challenge in the fabri…

Metabolic Engineering of Clostridium Tyrobutyricum for Butanol Production
TS-037555 — A new strain of bacteria that can produce butanol at a high titer for transportation fuel.
Butanol is generally used as an industrial solvent but can also be blended with gasoline and used as transportation fuel. Butanol is commonly produced using fossil fuels, but it can also be produced from biomass, referred to as biobutanol. Biobutanol is produced from fermentation of the same feeds…
