Rensselaer inventors created a nanocomposite fiber that promotes quick coagulation during hemorrhage resulting in reduced mobility and improved survival. The nanofiber composite is comprised of halloysite nanoclay, a natural occurring aluminosilicate nanoclay that exhibits a hollow tubular scroll structure. Hemostatic products on the market are effective in the short-term but…
Based on the famous ""mfold"", the UNAFold software package is an integrated collection of programs that simulate nucleic acid folding and hybridization, and its melting pathways for one or two single-stranded molecules. The package predicts folding for single-stranded RNA or DNA through combination of free energy minimization, partition function calculations and stochastic…
Alkaline exchange membranes (AEMs), also called anion exchange membranes, allow transportation of anions (ex: OH-, Cl-, Br-, etc.) from the cathode to the anode in electrochemical reaction. AEMs are the most critical component of AEM fuel cells, water electrolysis, and certain batteries, sensors, and actuators. Many AEM materials tend to degrade easily under high alkaline.…
New processes are proposed for preparation of novel, highly reactive, renewable substrate oxetane polymers, making it possible to use cationic oxetane photopolymerizations in many high-speed coatings, printing inks, adhesives, as well as in additive manufacturing processes such as stereolithography, digital imaging and in ink-jet printing. Specifically, an epoxide accelerant,…
Existing batteries suffer from performance deficiencies, for example, they have limited power density and may drain rapidly when used for certain applications. By employing sulfur in their cathodes, LiS batteries can realize substantially greater energy densities than existing energy storage devices. Sulfur by itself is not a suitable electrode material due to its poor…
This technology relates to anion exchange membranes with enhanced stability to high pH environments including poly(arylene sulfone) or poly(arylene ketone) with anion exchange groups. Membranes according to this technology are simple to produce and have good mechanical properties, improved alkaline stability, as well as good anionic conductivity. This technology is…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a scanning electron microscopy based temperature mapping technique which employs a temperature sensitive electron signal for nano-scale resolution, non-contact measurement. It provides enhanced capabilities for investigating heat generation and transfer at the nanoscale to address long-standing issues related to power consumption, heat…
This technology relates to semiconductor devices and growth techniques in the field of III-N semiconductors. For example, the technology provides a semiconductor device with a substrate comprising a groove. A buffer layer is formed on a surface of the groove. The buffer layer has at least one material chosen from AIN, GaN or AlxGa1-xN, where x is between zero and one. An…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a thermodynamically stable dispersion technology resulting in thick, transparent, high refractive index silicone nanocomposites that increase the light efficiency of LEDs and improve the emitted light color quality. The nanocomposites could also be processed as transparent bulk material with high filler loading, which is essential for…
This technology relates to synthesizing nanoparticles with multiple polymer assemblies attached. In one example, a first anchoring compound is attached to a nanoparticle, and a first group of monomers are polymerized on the first anchoring compound to form a first polymeric chain covalently bonded to the nanoparticle via the first anchoring compound. In another example, a…
