  5. : Cells, membranes and separators for Carbon Dioxide conversion to formic acid

    SBC: Dioxide Materials DBA Dioxide Recycle            Topic: 11c

    The objective of this project is to develop and energy efficient method to convert CO2 and water to formic acid. Formic acid is widely used in Europe as an alternative to antibiotics in animal feed, and for grain preservation, but it has not been adapted in the US because it is more expensive than other alternatives. The objective of Dioxide Materials work is to make formic acid from a carbon di ...

  8. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: RDMChem LLC            Topic: A14AT013

    Two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods represent all of the electrons in any molecule or material with only two electrons by replacing the wave function by the 2-RDM as the basic variable for quantum many-electron theory. The 2-RDM methods, developed by David Mazziotti at The University of Chicago with support from the Army Research Office, have polynomial scaling with system size, al ...

  9. Singlet-oxygen Plasma Afterglow Reaction Chamber for Disinfection and Sterilization

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: 18a

    The capability of discharge-produced reactive oxygen species, in particular O2(a1), to effectively inactivate biological species has been empirically well-established. Disinfection and sterilization processes for instruments, surfaces, and wounds are essential in disease prevention to ensure destruction of microorganisms that can contaminate materials. Such microorganisms include spore-forming and ...
