Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is developing novel high flux, compaction-resistant and durable polymer mesocomposite membranes for sustainable drinking water purification and water reuse. The new membranes exhibit 1) superior resistance to internal damage and pore compaction, 2) increased permeability with retention of s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project investigates the properties of mesoporous silicate nanoparticles and the use of these particles as non-toxic, char-forming flame retardants (FRs) for thermoset and thermoplastic polymers. The project elucidates the relationship between the physiochemical properties of the silicate compositi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: AM5-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate mesoporous silicate nanoparticles specifically functionalized to act as char-forming fire retardants (FR) for structural plastics. The particles provide substantial improvements over conventional FR agents that are environmentally undesirable (e.g., halogenated hydrocarbons...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Low-cost, environmentally compatible synthesis methods are used to prepare silicate nanoparticles with surface areas, surface polarity and hierarchical lamellar and mesoporous structures ideally suited as barrier and reinforcing agents for epoxy and polyimide thermoset polymers for use in next generation air transport systems (NGATS) and related...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II proposal aims to commercialize a new mesoporous silicate nanoparticles for the reinforcement of thermoplastic polymers used in the manufacture of U.S. cars and light trucks. Whereas nanoparticles, in general, provide some polymer reinforcement benefits, they typically lack the ability to pr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a low permeability composite material by applying a clay barrier film (CBF) nanotechnology to thermoplastic polymer systems (HDPE) for automotive applications, particularly for the manufacturing of fuel tanks. Preliminary work to date has shown that CBF nanocomposites ar...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

According to EPA estimates > 30,000 U.S. sites require remediation, due in part to heavy element contaminants. In addition, the EPA, which recently set the MCL for arsenic in drinking water at 10 ppb, estimates that ~ 350,000 people in the US drink water containing > 50 ppb of arsenic and nearly 25 million drink water containing >25 ppb arsenic....
