Award List:

SBIR Phase I:Commercialization and Scale Up of Ultra Low Fouling and Functionalizable Surface Coatings Based on Zwitterionic Polycarboxybetaine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Hong Xue, PhD
Award Amount: $165,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to enable the batch production of ultra-low fouling and functionalizable polycarboxybetaine (pCB) surface coatings. The approach is to develop a new route for the cost-effective and large-scale production of the zwitterionic… More

SBIR Phase II: Commercialization and Scale Up of Ultra Low Fouling and Functionalizable Surface Coatings Based on Zwitterionic Polycarboxybetaine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Zwitter Technology, LLC
Principal Investigator: Yuting E. Li – (206) 616-7546
Award Amount: $441,415.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to demonstrate the extraordinary performance of zwitterionic technology in protein interaction analysis. Zwitterionic polycarboxybetaine (pCB) is not only highly resistant to nonspecific protein adsorption, but also has abundant… More

Bioinspired Marine Coatings with Nonfouling and Fouling Release Capabilities

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Yuting Li, Director of Research – (210) 544-6077
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Bio-fouling on ship hulls and other marine structures has become a global environmental and economic issue. There is an urgent need for the development of next-generation marine coatings that are nontoxic, long-lasting, low-cost and effective even under static conditions. This Small Business… More
