Method for Preparing High-Energy Electrodes with Controlled Microstructures for Energy-Storage Devices
TS-052586 — A novel method for producing thick electrodes with controlled cracks to facilitate fast ionic transport and improve battery performance.
The Need Conventional electrodes for Li-ion batteries are prepared as thin layers of 70 to 100 microns to meet the power requirements of automotive applications. However, using thin electrodes compromises the energy densities of battery cells due to increasing weight and volume of inactive componen…

Ultra-Fast Charging Li-ion Battery Anodes
TS-040614 — A novel battery anode designed to overcome the limitations posed on fast charge batteries by graphite anodes. The new anode increases battery life, is more stable during manufacturing, and has improved heat dissipation qualities.
As technology continues to progress, embedding itself in our daily life from our cars to our wrists, an ever-present concern is the need for batteries with the ability to re-charge quickly. Most of these emerging technologies use Li-ion batteries with graphite anodes. Unfortunately, under fast cha…

Mixed cationic / zwitterionic surfactant solution for drag reduction
TS-038711 — A mixed surfactant solution consisting of a zwitterionic surfactant and cationic surfactant with an added counterion ("ZwitCat solution") which demonstrates switchable and improved drag-reduction ability at a wide range of compositions, flow rates, and temperatures
Large-scale recirculating heating and cooling systems, such as those for regional, district, and single-building applications, require a working fluid to be pumped across large distances from the heat source to the consumer. While large-scale systems like district heating are more energy efficient…

Development of Non-Foaming High Strength, Single Component Methacrylate/Polyurethane Adhesive
TS-037956 — A single component, moisture-cured methacrylate/polyurethane hybrid adhesive that combines the non-toxic, high strength properties of methacrylate adhesives with the bonding characteristics of polyurethanes
Methacrylate adhesives are strong and can be used on similar or dissimilar materials, such as plastic, metal, composites, and ceramic. They have excellent peel strength, resist abrasion, and stand up to a fair range of temperatures. They also require little preparation of the surfaces to be bonded…

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…
