Award List:

ULTRA-TRACE ANALYSIS OF WATER AND WASTEWATER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,998.00

ULTRA-TRACE ANALYSIS OF WATER AND WASTEWATER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Ionics research inc. (iri) has determined that uncoated capillary columns can be used to concentrate organics from water. the method is exceedingly simple and rapid (10 minutes per 100 ml), yet effective. iri plans to investigate the potential of this technique for the development of an instrument… More

ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED GAS CHROMATOGRAPH

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Robert d schwartz
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The use of microbore capillary columns for gas chromatography promises to facilitate the development of an instrument capable of resolving as many as 15 components persecond. thus, many analyses could be completed in just a few seconds permitting, for the first time, real-time analysis by gas… More

DRUG SCREENING: HIGH-SPEED CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00

HIGH-RESOLUTION PREPARATIVE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Robert D Schwartz , Research Manager
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
We propose to design, evaluate, and construct a new type of chromatographic system capable of separating gram quantitiesof peptide hormone and other substances with high resolution. the heart of the system will be an extruded multi-channel ceramic block. such blocks are commercially available with… More

GRADIENT-COATED ALUMINUM COLUMNS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Robert D Schwartz , Research Manager
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
We propose to evaluate and refine a novel gas chromatographic column with the following features: (1) a stationary phase of high thermal stability bonded to aluminum, (2) a gradient of film thickness of stationary phase to provide both high sample capacity and high resolving power, and (3) the… More

ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED CHROMATOGRAPHY FOR MONITORING PHOTOCHEMICALDETOXIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
A major problem associated with the use of ultra-high-resolution gas chromatography for effluent monitoring is the relatively low speed of analysis. we propose to develop an ultra-high-speed capillary gas chromatograph which would be suitable for the analysis of effluent samples in just a few… More

COATING OF ANHYDROUS LITHIUM PERCHLORATE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Robert D Schwartz , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Anhydrous lithium perchlorate is superior in many respects to ammonium perchlorate as an oxidizer. however, anhydrous lithium perchlorate is hygroscopic, and this renders it unsuitable for most applications. we propose to develop a technique for coating anhydrous lithium perchlorate with a thin,… More

PURIFICATION OF MACROMOLECULES BY PRECESSING CONTINUOUS COUNTER-CURRENT DISTRIBUTION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Robert D. Schwartz , Research Manager
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
We propose to construct, evaluate and refine a machine based upon continuous liquid-liquid partitioning which is potentially capable of separating gram quantities of macromolecules with a resolving power of tens of thousands of theoretical plates. partitioning will take place in a chamber 200 ft x 1… More

DRUG SCREENING: HIGH-SPEED CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $352,702.00
Abstract:
Major problems associated with the screening of body fluids for drugs of abuse include the relatively low speed of analysis and the often poor reliability of the generated data. capillary gas chromatography is acknowledged to be superior in performance to thin-layer chromatography and immunoassays,… More

Ibogaine Analysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Stephen Missler
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
Recent research in several laboratories has indicated that ibogaine may be of value in thetreatment of addictions to a number of drugs of abuse. Ibogaine, itself, is a hallucinogen. Thus,widespread use of ibogaine pharmacologically will inevitably lead to abuse of this substance. Currently,there is… More
