Process for Dissolving Salts in 1,2-Dichloroethane Using Ultrasound and a Device for Carrying Out Said Process

US06956143

The invention relates to a process and a device for the dissolution of salt that is hardly soluble, especially sodium chloride and other poorly soluble salts in 1,2 dichloroethane, which primarily are to be used in direct chlorination plants for the production of 1,2 dichloroethane. This aim is achieved by mounting an ultrasonic transducer (sonotrode) […]

Binding and In Situ Destruction of Chemical Agents and Other Contaminants

US26122451

A graphene-containing composition is employed to bind a contaminant, which is then destroyed in situ using microwave irradiation. In preferred aspects of the inventive subject matter, the microwave irradiation has a frequency and energy sufficient to cause electron emission from the graphene.

Compositions and Methods of Remediation Devices with Nanostructured Sorbent

US26191835

Contemplated remediation devices include a substantially completely hydrophobic, non-porous, and carbonaceous, and most preferably nanostructured material enclosed in a retaining structure. In further preferred aspects, the material inside the retaining structure adsorbs a contaminant from a medium located outside the retaining structure. Especially preferred nanostructured materials comprise graphene, while preferred contaminants include optionally substituted hydrocarbons, […]

Configurations and Methods for Assisted Condensation

US27051242

A condensation enhancer has a carrier to which carbonaceous nanostructured material is coupled such that a compound in gas phase contacting the enhancer condenses at a temperature that is higher than a condensation temperature of the compound on the condensation enhancer without the nanostructured material.

Configurations and Methods for Water Purification

US07128881

Volatile organic compounds are removed from a liquid and destroyed using a device in which an air stripper having alternating phases of hydrophilic and hydrophobic packing materials promotes transition of the VOC from the liquid phase into the gas phase, and wherein the is oxidized VOC in the gas phase on a hydrophobic carbon nanostructure […]

Parallel Inducible Cell Based Kinase Screen

WO04061409

A parallel inducible cell-based kinase screen (PICKS) includes a plurality ofcells that express a kinase gene under the control of an inducer and a reporter gene, wherein the cells are derived from a single cell line, and wherein the reporter gene generates a signal in response to catalytic activity or inhibition of the expressed kinases. […]

Enzyme Inhibitors and Methods Therefor

US06924269

An enzyme is inhibited by presenting the enzyme with a boron containing structure having a tetrahedral boron atom covalently bound to four ligands. Particularly preferred enzymes include prostaglandin endoperoxide synthase (COX-1 and COX-2), and particularly preferred structures include a ligand that confers at least 80-fold selectivity of COX-2 inhibition over COX-1 inhibition. Consequently, further methods […]

Monocyclic L-Nucleosides, Analogs, and Uses Thereof

US06573248

Novel monocyclic L-Nucleoside compounds have the general formula __. Embodiments of these compounds are contemplated to be useful in treating a wide variety of diseases including infections, infestations, neoplasms, and autoimmune diseases. Viewed in terms of mechanism, embodiments of the novel compounds show immunomodulatory activity, and are expected to be useful in modulating the cytokine […]

Microarray Detector and Methods

WO03100474

A detector for optical analysis of a biochip determines the focal position of a plurality of analytes on the biochip using one or more registration markers on the biochip, wherein the analytes and the registration marker are illuminated by different light sources. Therefore, contemplated configurations will significantly reduce overall focusing time and automate proper positioning […]

Stent Covered by a Layer Having a Layer Opening

US25228482

A drug eluting stent has a frame with at least one frame opening, and the frame is covered with an outer continuous layer and/or an inner continuous layer. The outer and/or inner layers further include a layer opening that at least partially overlaps with the frame opening to form a continuous opening having a size […]
