Nanoparticle and Long Fiber Reinforced Thermoset Nanocomposites
TS-037388 — A method to combine the advantages of both fiber reinforced plastics and polymer nanocomposites to produce a superior composite material.
Dispersion of nanoparticles into fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs) produces superior composites. Current methods face two problems: (1) best practices to disperse nanoparticles FRPs are not defined and (2) methods to maintain resin processability in the presence of nanoparticles are not understood.…

Polyvinylamine/Amino acid Salt Membranes for CO2 Separation
TS-015274 — A novel method for synthesizing polyvinylamine/amino acid salt membranes with increased stability, CO2 permeance, and CO2 selectivity
Facilitated transport membranes utilize fixed carriers, such as Polyvinylamine (PVAm), and mobile carriers to provide high CO2 permeance and maintain a high CO2/N2 selectivity compared to solution-diffusion membranes. Current production methods of commercial PVAm introduce many problems that can d…

Carbide bonded Graphene Coating
TS-015271 — A facile approach for obtaining carbide-bonded graphene coatings on a variety of metallic and nonmetallic substrates.
Despite the many attractive features of graphene, the lack of atomic bonds between graphene and substrates and among graphene nanosheets has limited its potential applications. Although theoretical considerations predict that covalent bonds between graphene nanosheets would significantly improve s…

Polymer/Inorganic Composite Membranes for Gas Separations
TS-015154 — Membranes that efficiently separate gasses such as H2 from coal gas, CO2 from flue gas, and O2 from air
Carbon dioxide, a major by-product of coal and natural gas fueled power plants, is a primary target for reduction of greenhouse gases. Two current approaches to produce inorganic membranes, gas phase synthesis and colloidal synthesis, are subject to defects in the deposition method and surface and…

Superior Fault Current Limiter
TS-014732 — Low-cost, high-efficiency superconductors and the scalable methods for their production
Fault current limiters (FCLs) are relatively new devices that are designed for limiting excessive electrical current to an electrical grid or system in the event of an electrical fault. Current FCL designs use cryogenic liquid to maintain superconductor cables at 80 K, this process is costly and e…
