Novel Foam Collector for Bioreactors
TS-039273 — A foam collector to be used with bioreactors that would target and remove secondary metabolites produced and held within foam that is a product of the chemical reactions conducted.
Certain chemical reactions conducted in bioreactors, like aerobic fermentation, can produce a persistent foam that fills the headspace of the reactor vessels in which the reaction is taking place. This foam can be removed by introducing surface agents, but this is extremely undesirable as these ag…

Automating the quantification of color space parameters from Visible Spectrum Absorbance
TS-036603 — Verbal communication of color is challenging, therefore mathematically-standardized color spaces are used. ColorBySpectra is software that in one click can convert large sets of absorbance data obtained from a simple spectrophotometer into color spaces: Hunter Lab, CIEL*c*h* and CIEL*a*b*. It reduces time for data collection, and sample volume and equipment needs. The software is useable on multiple platforms and would be useful in food science or other industries interested in precise color information.
There are several commonly used color spaces that quantify perceived color which include Hunter Lab, CIELab, and CIELch. To obtain these values, samples are usually presented to a colorimeter one sample at a time. Obtaining color data can be time consuming for many samples, and special equipment d…

Black Goji Anthocyanins for Natural Food Colorant
TS-034593 — Extracted anthocyanins from Black Goji fruits (Lycium ruthenicum Murr) that can be used in the food industry as a potential source of natural color in a wide pH range.
Americans spend about 90 percent of their food budget on processed foods, almost all of which contain a plethora of additives. One of the most frequently used food additives is artificial coloring, and in the past synthetic food colorants were most popular. Increasingly however, public demand has …

Jet-Mixing Reactor for ZIF Nanomaterial Synthesis Using Stoichiometric Amounts of Reactants
TS-031211 — A method for the continuous and high yield synthesis of ZIF nanomaterials (<100 nm) using stoichiometric amounts of reactants with a jet-mix reactor.
A zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF) is a type of metal-organic framework (MOF) that can be used as a catalyst in membranes and for gas adsorption applications. These porous structures can be exposed to high temperatures and can remain stable after boiling in water or solvents, which makes them …

Paired Lewis Acid Site Zeolite Catalysts for the Selective Conversion of Glucose to Fructose
TS-030928 — A zeolite catalyst with a unique chemical structure that utilizes paired Lewis acid sites to increase the catalytic selectivity for the isomerization of glucose and other sugars into fructose.
Fructose is a key compound in the food and fermentation industries that is typically produced via the enzymatic isomerization of glucose. The enzymes used to efficiently convert glucose to fructose are expensive to manufacture and sensitive to processing conditions. An alternative approach is to d…
