Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking coatings/materials to alter the wetting features of surfaces (e.g. Superhydrophobicity, Superamphphilicity etc.)We are interested in depositing a coating/primer/material on a soft/flexible surface (ideally the surface is a biological surface) in order to generate non conventional wetting behavior. The coating will impart to the surface one of the following effects: superhydrophobicity, superamphiphobicity or superamphiphilicity. The material composing the matrix of the coating will not be solubilized by water or oils (a small degree of swellability upon water or oil absorption, could be accepted) and will have good adhesion to the surface. The materials should leave a transparent/colorless and elastic/flexible and ideally non-occlusive coating.
Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking effective means of eliminating malodours in the air and/or on surfacesThis European client is an established manufacturer of a range of consumer products, continually searching for ways to enhance their users’ enjoyment of their products and the environment they are used in. For many consumers, improving the air space they live, travel and work in has become more important, and using traditional air fresheners are no longer sufficient, with a more effective, ‘invisible’, even natural solution being required. Such solutions can be applied to consumer products to ensure the perception of clean air, or be used to refresh the environment around the consumer when odours are apparent. The client is searching for new and effective means of eliminating malodours in the air and/or on surfaces (e.g. prevent the smell from lingering on clothes or skin), as residue can be deposited from the odours and easily trapped in materials. Whilst many manufacturers solve this with simple masking of the compounds with fragrances, our client is specifically looking for a solution which can trap the malodour when it is released and convert it into another compound; hence eliminating the malodour and not allowing it to resurface when the masking agent has worn off
Alexander Kvashnin posted this Technology CallSeeking for technology of super intensive cultivation of white-legged shrimps in salted waterIn the modern practice of industrial shrimp cultivation in open lagoons in Southeast Asia there is a number of significant issues. These include the need to introduce modern water treatment systems, to enhance the biological safety of lagoons and prevent shrimp diseases. Other issues are energy-efficient aeration systems, circulation systems and wastewater treatment. The Vietnamese company aims to launch and then scale up the innovative business in the super-intensive cultivation of white leg shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei / Penaeus vannamei) in saline water: a mixture of sea and fresh water. Super-intensive shrimp cultivation includes planting density of more than 200-250 pieces of shrimp per square meter or more. Thus, the main issue is the solution of such problems as biosafety and water treatment. In the process of cultivation, a closed cycle of water exchange or total absence of water exchange should be provided. We are interested in technologies of water preparation and treatment, waste processing and other elements of shrimp cultivation technology without the use of harmful chemicals. The company is interested in cooperation with partners that could supply technology and equipment, as well as technical assistance at the stage of launching shrimp production and the the stage of enterprise's reaching the required capacity. The company is going to start up a business on the south coast of Vietnam.

Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking hyperbranched, non charged, short molecules/dendrimers able to be coupled to keratinous surfacesWe are seeking for molecules/compounds/materials which are chemically composed of two opposite parts (see Fig.). The first part of such molecules has a hyperbranched/dendrimer-like/fork shape. The second part (which is geometrically opposit to the first) is a moiety which will favour attachement. The attachment on the skin or hair surface could be generated by adhesion, covalent bonding, electrostatic attachment etc. For instance such latter moieity could react with free amines present on the hair fibers (more attachment points on the skin and hair could be considered, e.g. hydroxyl groups). Lactone groups are an example reported in literature of a reactive moiety which upon heat application can bound to the free amine of the hair. Once bounded to the skin/hair such molecules will work as molecular spacers. The molecules need to be neutrally charged, rigid, branched and have a low particle density (number of atoms in a physical volume). They will therefore decrease the interaction (e.g. Van der Walls attactions) between external particles (such as sand or dust) and the functionalized surface. Example: N-Glycans are an example of such molecular spacers and an example of desired geometrical structure. Glycan with 5 Mannose units for instance will occupy a Volume of 2.25 x 1.65 x 1.24nm with 162 atoms, which lead to a particle density of 35 x 10(^27) atoms/m^3. Such lower particle density will lead to a reduction of the Hamaker-interaction coeffiecint between the funcitonalized surface and an approaching particle. Such molecule will therefore lead to a decrease of the friction coefficient and adhesion forces.

Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking step-change functionality in the manufacture of specific Polymers to simplify the creation, manufacturing and end of life processingOur client is an established European manufacturer of speciality polyols, glycols and polyolefin-based materials for use in technically demanding and often niche applications. Polyolefins (POs) are versatile plastics with good physical and chemical properties (e.g. lightweight, transparent, mechanical, flexibility and weather resistance), and as such are used in a wide variety of industries. Polyols and glycols are intermediates used for the manufacture of materials such as polyurethane (e.g. for adhesive or foams). The client’s materials are considered specialised grades (not commodity materials) and are often used in emerging markets and for new applications; they are also supported by excellent customer service. However, these materials are now required to provide enhanced performance to justify their continuing use and increasingly require a simplified route to recycling and potential reuse. The client therefore wishes to provide step-change functionality in the manufacture of specific polyols and polyolefin materials by simplifying the creation, manufacturing and end of life processing, in addition to ways to differentiate their materials providing enhanced material performance for their customers. This could include enabling use of these plastic materials in applications previously not covered (i.e. replacing wood / metal / concrete / glass). Polymers of interest include: ▪ Polyolefin-based (PO) materials: - Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) and Ethylene butyl acrylate (EBA) - Polyethylene – high and low density (HDPE and LDPE/LLDPE) - Polypropylene (PP) copolymers ▪ Polyol- / Glycol- based materials
