  1. Vegetable Oil Gels for Clear Candles

    SBC: APPLECHEM INC            Topic: N/A

    At present, there are opaque candles based-on hydrogenated vegetable oil waxes, and premium transparent container gel candles based on mineral oil gel. However, there are no commercialized technologies for transparent gel candles based-on vegetable oils. The purpose of this project is to synthesize a class of new polymers which can form a trasparent vegetable oil gel for making the clear container ...

  2. Breakthrough Process for Hydrogen Peroxide Production

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Hydrogen peroxide is fast becoming the oxidant, bleach, disinfectant, and biocide of choice for treating aqueous waste streams. It is a powerful oxidizer, stronger than chlorine and chlorine dioxide, and as it decomposes into only oxygen and water, it avoids many of the toxicity and persistence issues associated with other chemical treatments. However, the use of hydrogen peroxide to treat wastewa ...

  3. An In-Line Test for the Colorimetric Determination of Somatic Cell Count

    SBC: PORTASCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Many attempts had been made to bring faster testing to the cow-side. The introduction of automatic milking systems (AMS) has the potential to enhance milk production and milk quality. In addition, the size of dairy farms has been increasing, with the increasing need for better cow management. Many of these larger farms are moving to AMS. For this reason, there has been increasing interest in the d ...

  8. STTR Phase I: Distributed Micro-Optical Sensor Technology for Temperature, Pressure and Strain Measurements

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate a micro-optical distributed sensor technology for temperature, pressure and strain measurements. The measurement principle is based on the detection of optical mode shifts of dielectric micro-beads that serve as sensors. The sensors are weakly coupled to one or more optical fibers and are excited by a tunable laser lig ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: RFID tags for cardiopulmonary monitoring in clinical setting

    SBC: New Jersey Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop a customized radio frequency (RF) integrated circuit (IC) using radio frequency Identification (RFID) technology. This RF IC will be used in cardiopulmonary monitoring system. The system uses a disposable MEMS sensor in the form of adhesive tags that receive power remotely through a remote radio frequency source. In this p ...
