Fouling Employed to Design Adsorbents
This is a proposal to further explore, building on preliminary encouraging results, the possibilities of using preconditioned HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) columns for protein separations. The column will ...

ABSTRACT<br/><br/>PI: Eli Ruckenstein <br/>Institution: SUNY Buffalo<br/>Proposal Number: 0086491<br/><br/>Thermally reversible covalently (TRC) linked halide containing crosslinked ...
Collaborative Research: Statistical Study of the Homogeneous Nucleation by Applying a Novel Multidroplet Levitator Trap and Microscopic Theory of Homogeneous Nucleation
Abstract<br/>CTS- 0000548<br/>E.Ruckenstein, Research foundation of SUNY at Buffalo<br/><br/>It is proposed to advance our understanding of the phenomenon of homogeneous nucleation , with an emphasis ...
Modification of the Surface Properties of Polymers
The interfacial free energy between a polymer and water is relatively large. As a result, proteins, platelets and cells will deposit upon its surface. By modifying the surface properties of the polymers, one can reduce the ...
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 ...
Chitosan-Based Affinity Separation Membranes
CTS - 9629458 Eli Ruckenstein SUNY Buffalo Abstract The project will focus on using chitosan to develop microporous membranes for affinity separations. Compared to currently available membranes based on nylon or cellulose, ...
