Abstract:… are sought. Permethrin is toxic to humans and to wildlife, insects are increasingly resistant to its effects and the procedures by which it is applied are burdensome to personnel in the field. This proposal describes a novel approach to the formation of insect repellant… more
Abstract:… found on underwater vehicles exposed to hydrostatic pressures up to ~10 atm, corresponding to depths of ~100 meters in fresh or salt water, through a combination of NEI"s in-house coating materials development and evaluations of existing nanostructured water-repellent… more
Abstract:… biochemicals have applications in a variety of industries ranging from agro-chemicals, petro-chemicals and flavor and fragrance (F & F) chemicals; specifically they are commonly used as flavor agents, bio- herbicides, sprout inhibitors and as bio-pest repellents. In… more
Abstract:…ion (electron loss) and adhesion to metal surfaces via the formation of bonds between the metal center of the proposed molecules and the oxo groups (precursors to rust) present on metal surface exposed to the environment. Taken together the above features insure water repelling… more
Abstract:… life cycle mostly under tree bark, exposure to insecticides is limited to the short period when adults search for new host trees. Control of mountain pine beetle (MPB), one of the most damaging species, is limited to persistent chemical insecticides and pheromone repellents.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A key component to combating mosquito-borne illnesses is prevention from acquiring the disease. Current mosquito repellents, such as Permethrin and DEET, have been shown to be too costly and mosquitoes can eventually develop resistance to… more
Abstract:… technology developed in the PI's lab at the University of Rochester that can be used for fast, inexpensive and simple biomolecular separations needed to purify nucleic acid reactions. Particle surfaces are specially configured to selectively adsorb or repel various… more
Abstract:… that will prevent fouling by a more environmentally responsible mechanism that is also low-maintenance and long-lasting. In this proposed program, Luna Innovations will develop a novel coating system that will remedy biofouling through two different mechanisms, repelling… more
Abstract:Maintaining a high level of visibility through aircraft transparencies is very difficult under inclement operational conditions. This is an increased problem with the F35, which must land on aircraft carriers and do not possess windshield wipers to clear the canopies. There have been significant… more
Abstract:… conditions can include frequent high-impacts landings, sand/snow/dust abrasion, and constant fluid contact (leading to fluid intrusion). Nanotrons propose a low-cost fabrication process to produce a low-friction, impact-resistant, abrasion-resistant, and super-fluid repellent… more
Abstract:… growers farm less than 100 acres, yielding less than $200,000 in yearly farm income. Successful completion of this project will provide potato growers with a valuable tool for managing potato psyllid to reduce the risk of spreading ZC. If labeled organic, REPEL ZC has the… more
Abstract:… it impossible for many growers to use the limited pest management tools available. Successful completion of this project will provide citrus growers with a valuable tool for managing ACP, and reduce the risk of spreading HLB. If labeled organic, SPLAT ACP Repel has the… more
Abstract:…. During Phase I of this project, a robust, superhydrophobic and oleophilic coating was successfully developed, applied and tested on M8 paper. These tests demonstrated that this ruggedized and improved version of M8 detection strips was able to aggressively repel… more
Abstract:…eets the technological challenge of detecting birds flying into an area where there is the potential for collision with an aircraft using a passive infrasound capability for detection of their presence then using non-lethal active infrasound capability to effectively repel the… more
Abstract:… the trigeminal nervous system, which directly addresses acquisitions program requirements. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate feasibility of the TOG by determining the threshold at which trigeminal nerve activation occurs and testing the malodorant for optimal dosage to repel… more
Abstract:… open question regarding long-term sustainability. For various reasons, advertising is the most promising revenue approach. However, the crowd-source nature of the system presents considerable unknowns due to the reliance on user contribution and potential for repelling… more
Abstract:…. Importantly, the material can be removed and re-applied without damaging the surface. In this project, an optimal formulation of the solution will be determined. The effects of surface morphology, and coating methods (e.g. dipping vs. spraying) on water repellency,… more
Abstract:… food can harbor bacterial in areas that retain water. By applying a scratch- and abrasion-resistant superhydrophobic surface, safety would be significantly improved, as the potential for water to be harbored in reservoirs would be greatly reduced. Surfaces that repel… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
