Starbons® are a novel family of mesoporous materials derived from polysaccharides, which have surface tunable functionalities ranging from hydrophilic to hydrophobic. This novel Starbon® technology utilizes the natural ability for polysaccharides to retain their organized [...]
Magnetic separation is a complex physical process in which magnetically susceptible composites is extracted from a liquid mixture using magnetic properties of the substances. Several separation procedures are developed based on magnetic susceptibility, magnetohydrostatic, magnetohydrodynamic [...]
Monohidróxide aluminum, known as pseudoboehmite (AlOOH) was obtained by the sol-gel method by the reaction between aluminum and isopropyl alcohol to produce aluminum isopropoxide using mercuric iodide and Iodine sublimed as catalyst. This work looks [...]
Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been playing an increasingly important role in volatile organic compound (VOC) sensing for air quality control. The unique feature of these materials is their biomimetic molecular recognition functionality. Theoretical chemistry [...]
Plastics play a very important role in our daily life with a dramatical increase in the consumption of plastics worldwide. To produce in vast and increasing amounts of plastics in order to meet the current [...]
Catalytic dissociation reaction of waste plastics and news paper was studied for oil production. SEM analysis were performed to find out crystal structure of prepared catalysts. GC-MAS analysis was also performed to find out product [...]
After industrial revolution, the increases of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere are resulted from the consumption of huge amounts of fossil fuels; hence causes global climate changes including temperature increasing and ocean level rising. Technologies [...]
The goal of the project is reduction of contaminants associated with gasoline at a retail fuel station. Groundwater gasoline range organic concentrations at the site were 500 mg/L prior to system startup. Advanced technologies and [...]
Depleted Uranium (DU) is mostly composed by the natural radioactive isotope U238 and it is a by-product of the enrichment process, that part of the nuclear reactors fuel cycle that produces the nuclear fuel to [...]
A Wireless Sensor based solution that enables the common man to use his cell phone and enable Smart Energy Monitoring & Security Management The solution uses extremely innovative and disruptive technologies that enable the common [...]
Methane is a greenhouse gas that has 25 times the environmental impact of carbon dioxide. Millions of tons of manmade methane seep into the atmosphere each year. Controlling this methane has been problematic. Much of [...]
This work deals with a new technology development for conversion of carbon dioxide to useful value added products. The focus is on how to make the process economically feasible so that it can be viable [...]
