  1. OPTICAL RESOLUTION OF DL-PHENYLALANINE IN A MEMBRANE REACTOR

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1983 National Science Foundation
  2. STTR Phase I: Engineering Clostritrial Fermentation for Biobutanol Production

    SBC: BIOPROCESSING INNOVATIVE COMPANY INC            Topic: EO

    Intellectual Merit: This STTR project will develop novel engineered Clostridia strains for fermentation to economically produce butanol as a biofuel from sugars derived from starchy and lignocellulosic biomass. Butanol is an important industrial solvent and potentially a better transportation fuel than ethanol. Recent rising oil prices and limited petroleum resources have generated high interest i ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Software Platform for Quality-by-Design Implementation

    SBC: Blue Reference            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a novel Quality-by-Design (QbD) software platform directed at the needs of FDA's QbD initiative, a framework for innovative pharmaceutical development, manufacturing and quality assurance. QbD is implemented at four levels: process understanding; quality by design; monitor, predict and control; and continuous improveme ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Enhancing Starch Quantity and Quality in Hybrid Grain Sorghum

    SBC: Caisson Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project developes methods to molecularly abort sorghum embryos, early in their development, to redirect nutrients, normally used for embryo development, toward starch accumulation. The research will construct and test genetic cassettes necessary for aborting embryo development in seeds and identify sorghum lines possessing high tissue culture regener ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays

    SBC: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...

  6. STTR PHASE I: Simple Desulfurizing Component Enables Fuel Processing of Sulfur-laden Logistic Fuels for Fuel Cells

    SBC: CATACEL CORP            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will investigate the technical and commercial feasibility of coating metal foils with a solid sorbent so that they act as a desulfurizing component for pre-treatment of sulfur-laden liquid fuels. The coated foils will be inserted into a small heat exchanger that acts as a platform unit for conversion of liquid fuels to hydrogen for fue ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF NB(X)TI(1-X)O(2-D) SEMICONDUCTING ELECTRODES FOR PHOTOELECTROLYSIS OF WATER

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1983 National Science Foundation
  8. SBIR Phase I: Eliminating Critical Failure Mechanisms and Increasing Performance Development in Alkaline Fuel Cells by using a Solid Polymer Electrolyte

    SBC: Chemsultants International Inc.            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel hydroxyl ion-conducting polymer membrane for use in anion exchange alkaline fuel cells through a parallel approach based on two novel polymer approaches each combined with nano particle functionality. A key issue with traditional alkaline fuel cells (AFC) is electrolyte and electrode degradation caused by the formi ...

  9. STTR Phase I: A Simple and Innovative Approach to the Synthesis of Metal, Alloy, Metal Oxide, and Mixed-Metal Oxide Nanoparticles

    SBC: Cosmas, Inc.            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project addresses the scale-up to kilogram quantities of a novel university laboratory solid-state method of synthesizing metal oxide and metal nanoparticles by mixing common chemical starting materials and baking the resulting precursor material at modest temperatures; and the dispersment of the loosely agglomerated particles for comm ...

  10. POLYMER THREADS

    SBC: David L. Heiserman            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL REMOTE MANIPULATOR END-EFFECTOR TECHNIQUES ARE NOT SATIFYING THE CURRENT NEED FOR SMALLER, SIMPLER, MORE EFFICIENT MICRMANIPULATOR SYSTEMS. THERE IS CLEARLY A NEED FOR AN ENTIRELY DIIFERENT APPROACH TO GENERATING AND CONTROLLING MECHANICAL MOTION AT MILLIMETER AND SUB-MILLIMETER LEVELS. ONE SUCH APPROACH, SUGGESTED IN THIS PROPOSAL, TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE PIEZOELECTRIC PROPERTIES OF C ...
