  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 ...

  4. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...
