Recently, reduction of water consumption by industry has been an important challenge. Enhanced ultrafiltration with polymers is a feasible method to remove metal ions from diluted wastewater streams. Biomacromolecules, biodegradable polymers as biomaterials have an [...]
The direct energy conversion of nuclear energy requires nano-structured nuclear fuel. The principle of the radiation energy direct conversion is the usage of the knock-on electrons produced by the moving particle interaction with the lattice. [...]
An efficient hydrogen storage material is a hot topic of discussion among modern scientific community worldwide. The efficiency of the hydrogen storage material is measured on the basis of their adsorption enthalpy. Low adsorption enthalpy [...]
The main objective of the U.S. Army’s Active Coatings Technologies Program is to develop technologies that can be used in combination to tailor coatings for utilization on Army Materiel. The Active Coatings Technologies Program, ACT, [...]
Material and Fan Blade Design Concepts shown in fig. 1 are introduced as follows: 1) CNT-reinforced micro-balloons to be used to create syntactic foam (an two-part epoxy adhesive filled with micro-balloons) such that the density [...]
This paper presents results concerning the fabrication, characterisation, and application of nano-structured titanium dioxide films. Applications include photocatalytic purification of water, “self-decontaminating” surfaces, and electrochemical biosensing.
Carbon nanotubes are being widely studied for various applications ranging from medical to electronics and also optical devices. They are also being studied for the suitability and applications in aerospace and aeronautical field. A useful [...]
Supercritical Water Hydrothermal Synthesis (scWHS) is a relatively simple and environmentally friendly process for the production of potentially valuable metal oxide nanoparticles. This paper presents the conclusions of collaborative work between chemical engineers and chemists [...]
Perchlorate removal in a clean, cost-effective and public-acceptable approach is one of the important issues for current drinking water treatment. Catalytic membrane (CM) was prepared by coating monometallic catalysts of the nano-size onto supports by [...]
A new class of high-performance nanoporous sorbents has been developed for heavy metal removal that overcomes the deficiencies of existing technologies. These novel materials are created from a combination of synthetic mesoporous ceramic substrates that [...]
Thermostability study of commercial P25 TiO2 nanoparticles was carried out by ascending annealing temperature from 400 to 1100 oC. The thermostability of TiO2 structure was measured by X-ray diffraction (XRD). Anatase-Rutile phase transition occurred only [...]
Organophosphorus pesticides and warfare agents are not readily hydrolyzed in aqueous media without applying extremes of pH, heat, or bleach. We show that suspensions of magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles modified with a common antidote, 2-pralidoxime (PAM), [...]
Maintaining an adequate oxygen supply to aerobic cell cultures has been a long-standing problem in fermentation technology. Insufficient oxygen transfer rates limit cell growth and ultimately process productivity. Our approach to reducing the oxygen transport [...]
The emission control catalyst market is about $11 billion and growing while global concerns over environmental pollution have resulted in increasingly stringent regulations. This business opportunity, however, is complicated by the requirement for higher performance [...]
Magnetic nanoparticles encapsulated in a thin coating as magnetic separable nano-vehicle for chemical species is a hot but challenging area. The stability of the small magnetic body remains a key issue. In this meeting, we [...]

Supersonic cluster beam deposition was employed to produce nanostructured thin films of transition metal oxides to be used as gas sensors. The cluster beam was generated by a pulsed microplasma cluster source equipped with aerodynamic [...]
As part of an effort to evaluate water-based nanofluids for nuclear applications, preparation and characterization has been performed for nanofluids being considered for MIT’s nanofluid heat transfer experiments. Three methods of generating these nanofluids are [...]
High performance iPP based nanocomposites filled with innovative calcium carbonate nanoparticles were prepared by melt mixing. Peculiarities of the nanoparticles were the high specific surface area, the elongated shape (aragonite), and the surface modifiers (polypropylene-maleic [...]
We have developed a prototype nano-grade crushing machine that leads to improved yield. The machine utilizes ultrasound in connection with pressure as high as 3400 kg/cm2 to achieve final product with nanometer scale. We have [...]
Nanobattary microstructure consists of anode, cathode, electrolyte, separator for miniaturized power source. Miniaturization is a challenging area of research. Miniature power sources have a variety of applications on miniature power-controlled devices. Li-Ion is selected by [...]
