The developed technology aims to solve the water production and management problem in the cathode catalyst layer of a PEM Fuel Cell during a high current density operation.

Subcategory(s):

Continuous process for the controlled ozonolysis of organsolv lignin in a solvent consisting of short chain carboxylic acids or short chain carboxylic acid/water mixtures to yield aromatic monomer products including vanillin.

This invention allows use of an efficient and stable oxygen evolution catalyst that facilitates water splitting without requiring noble metals or complicated synthesis methods. 

A safe method for the direct oxidation of methane and light alkanes to methanol and other oxygenates is disclosed.  Selective catalytic oxidation can be a transformative technology for using increasing abundant natural gas, bio-gas and other sources of low value hydrocarbons via gas to liquid process.

The present invention provides decellularized cartilage (DCC) fragments or powder as a raw material component to be utilized for scaffolds and provides a microenvironment similar to that of native cartilage tissue. The DCC powder provides a platform technology upon which many cartilage, or even bone, tissue engineering scaffolds could be based.

Subcategory(s):

A device for rapid dialysis of microliter volume liquid samples useful in laboratory-scale dialysis operations.

Subcategory(s):

Novel ligands designed to activate mu opioid receptors and provide analgesic effects without opioid-related side effects, providing specific insight into the cellular impact of opioid receptor-based activation as related to pain medications.  These ligands could be used as a tool to negate drug tolerance and dependence as well as other adverse side effects.

KU researchers have invented a high-pressure reactor equipped with an internal ultrasonic mixer that is useful for preparing nanomaterials and for conducting reactions with ozone and other reactive gases.  The apparatus facilitates the use of supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) as a solvent, allowing the advantages of the solvent properties of the supercritical fluid and the agitation achievable using ultrasonic energy. 

Category(s):

This invention provides a method for synthesizing a novel hydrogel that can switch its wettability and absorption for polar liquids and maintain its non-polar liquid repellency while requiring minimal heat input.  The invention enables a separation method has the potential to reduce energy costs for some industrial processes and has been employed to separate immiscible polar-non-polar liquid mixtures (water and oil) and a completely miscible liquid mixture (ethanol and heptane) at room temperature.

Subcategory(s):

Photo-mediated Ultrasound Therapy (PUT) is a non-pharmacological, highly targeted, non-invasive treatment which selectively disrupts the microvasculature (arteries or veins independently) without catheterization/injection or damage to the surrounding tissue.
