GOALI: "Compatibilized Polymer Blends"
ABSTRACT CTS-9616192 Polymer blends are mostly prepared through melt-mixing. The compatibilization of the polymers occurs during melt-processing, especially via reactive extrusion. In this proposal, an alternative approach ...
Macroporous Chitin and Chitosan Membranes for Affinity Separation of Biomolecules
Abstract Proposal No: 9711389 Proposal Type: Investigator Inititated Principal Investigator: Eli Ruckenstein Affiliation: State University of New York at Buffalo This grant is awarded through the Separations and Purification ...
Role of Transport Phenomena in the Impregnation of Porous Media by Active Catalytic Materials
The effect of transport phenomena (including electrokinetic effects) during the preparation of supported metal catalysis by wet impregnation is examined theoretically. A model for the transient diffusion - adsorption process ...
Thermodynamic Stability of Microemulsions
A New Technology, Based on Inversted Micelles, for Composite Conductive Polymers
9406889 Ruckenstein With the discovery of conductive polymers, the possibility to combine the versatility of polymers with the electrical properties of metals became possible. However, the initial conductive polymers were ...
Rejuvenation of Supported Metal Catalyst
Emulsion Pathways to Composite Polymeric Membranes for Separation Processes
In this project the investigator proposes a systematic evaluation of a new-type of membrane to be used in separations processes. The principal novel aspect of the proposed work is formation of the membrane by polymerization ...
A New Kind of Membrane for Separation Processes: The Hydrophobic-Hydrophilic Membranes (Expedited Award for Novel Research)
The proposed process would allow design of a membrane for a specific liquid separation. Monomers of two immiscible polymers are dispersed in one another with a surfactant (probably a block copolymer). A very high dispersed-phase ...
