Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.8-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Phase change materials (PCMs) are a class of materials that use phase changes (e.g., melting) to absorb or release relatively large amounts of latent heat at relatively constant temperature. Applications include such things as clothing, building air conditioning, and medical-related shipping containers. However, the one area that still plagues t...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

This SBIR Phase II research focuses on a new type of phase change material(PCM)that can meet performance goals of being fire-retardant, non-toxic, and renewable. This project will advance the state of understanding of fat/oil chemistries. It will also advance our understanding of non-ideal mixture behavior. Applications that will benefit incl...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will use fats and oils to make phase-change materials (PCM) with fire-retardant properties, so they can be used in clothing and around hot objects. Phase change materials are a class of materials that use phase changes (e.g., melting) to absorb or release relatively large a...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Stanford University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate a feasible approach to manufacturing metal oxide based pH sensors for use in long-term cell culture and tissue-engineering experiments. Current electrochemical pH sensors do not meet the demonstrable need for accurate, stable, reliable and robust sensors in biologic...
