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…

N-Proanol and Propionic Acid Producing Propionibacteria
TS-037515 — New method of producing n-propanol and propionic acid using a metabolically engineered propionibacteria.
Propionibacteria are well-known for their various industrial applications including the manufacturing of Swiss cheese, vitamin B12, and propionic acid. However, not much is known about their genetics, and few studies have been conducted utilizing them for metabolic engineering, mostly in vitamin B…

Ultrathin Layer Chromatography Plates using Carbon Nanoparticles
TS-015316 — Carbon nanoparticle-filled polyacrylonitrile electrospun stationary phase for ultrathin layer chromatography (UTLC)
Carbon materials have been widely used as stationary phase in separation science due to their unique selectivity and stability. The wide variety of potential intermolecular interactions that can occur between carbon surfaces and target analytes makes carbon stationary phases applicable to a wide v…

Molecularly Imprinted Pyrolyzed Photoresist - A Molecularly Imprinted Carbon
TS-015282 — A thermo-stable, durable, and highly selective molecular carbon template for solid phase extraction/microextraction.
Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) are robust molecular recognition elements able to mimic natural recognition entities, such as antibodies and biological receptors, useful to separate and analyze complicated samples such as biological fluids and environmental samples. This is a commonly utiliz…

Biobutal Production from Synthetic Hydrogen Bacteria
TS-015230 — Unique bacterial strains for conversion of carbon dioxide and hydrogen into biobutanol.
Biobutanol is traditionally produced by anaerobic conversion (fermentation) of carbohydrates by strains of Clostridium spp. However, the yield from this process is low, and it is cost-prohibitive from commercial standpoint. Additionally, Clostridium strains have low tolerance to butanol. There is …

Self-Assembly of Therapeutic-Agent Nanostructures
TS-014812 — An improved delivery mechanism has been developed for hydrophobic drugs such as camptothecin which will increase chemotherapeutic efficacy.
Many cancer therapeutics exhibit extremely toxic side effects or have limited efficacy due to low bio-availability. Existing drug delivery technologies can add excessive mass to the therapeutic, grossly expanding the dosage necessary for response. Camptothecin (CPT) is a naturally occurring compou…

Butanol Production from Renewable Biomass
TS-014747 — A genetically engineered bacteria pathway directed to selectively generate butanol over competing by-products.
Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) Fermentation is one of two methods to produce butanol from biomass feedstocks. Various active enzymes or acids are exposed to a biomass feedstock and subsequently produce primarily acetone, butanol and ethanol. Previous attempts in the industry to use Clostridium stra…
