Javier Montiel Bonmatí posted this:New filter for removing tar, nicotine and toxic compounds from tobacco smokeThe group of investigation of Processing and pyrolysis of polymers of the University of Alicante has developed a new combined filter that eliminates the tar, the nicotine and other toxic gases present in tobacco smoke in a very efficient way more efficiently than current filters available in the market. The invention is characterized because it combines three membranes of different characteristics arranged in a very specific way. The primary membrane (M1), located at the end closest to the tobacco column, is formed by a perforated disk of impermeable material. It also has an outer membrane (M3) of cellulose acetate fiber located at the end in contact with the mouth of the smoker. It can also incorporate a cylindrical intermediate membrane (M2) between M1 and M3 formed by an adsorbent material. This innovative combined filter has a low manufacturing cost, allows to dispense tastes and flavors, and can be applied in both commercial cigarettes and filters for rolling tobacco. Wanted companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.

Javier Montiel Bonmatí posted this:New metal-free electrocatalysts for fuel cellsThe Carbon Materials and Environment Research Group of the University of Alicante has developed a new method for obtaining carbon materials with excellent properties such as electrocatalysts in fuel cells or metal-air batteries. The process is based on the thermal treatment of polyaniline (or its derivatives) at high temperature and allows to obtain metal-free carbon materials with a high performance, in a very simple, fast way and in a single stage. These novel materials are characterized by their excellent catalytic activity and selectivity in the oxygen reduction reaction in alkaline medium, they are very stable and resistant to methanol and carbon monoxide poisoning, and above all, they stand out for their low manufacturing cost, which makes them promising candidates to replace the current commercial platinum-based catalysts. We are looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.

Universidad de Alicante posted this:New method for controlled synthesis of mesoporous solids from any kind of POM based saltMesoporous solids are compounds used as catalysts and also as catalysts support in many chemical reactions. Catalysts are chemical compounds that increase speed reaction without modifying its own chemical characteristics. Same of them are used in the same phase that reagents and they are called homogeneous catalysts. Other are supported or imbedded in a porous surface, so called heterogeneous or contact catalysts. Most of the catalysts are extremely environmentally dangerous, as they are based in H2SO4 and HF, or very expensive, as they include noble metal compounds. In order to solve it, intense research in the latest decades has come up with catalysts based on polyoxometalates (POM). POM are a large family of nanoscale metal-oxide anionic clusters that combine easily with external positive ions to achieve electroneutrality. Regarding catalysis, POM group based on Keggin molecular structure is the most interesting because it confers them acid properties and great solubility in watery solutions. In that case, positive ions are protons and compound is called heteropolyacid (HPA). It has applications as homogeneous catalysts. POM can also be used as heterogeneous catalysts when replacing positive ions by cations to obtain the corresponding insoluble salt: the cation combined with the POM determines degree of solubility, thermal stability, acidity and porosity of the salt. These catalysts must provide a great superficial area, i.e. a great number and size of porous to provide a big number of loci to adsorb catalysed reactions. Nowadays, according to the cation used (ammonium, caesium) specific surface of about 100 m2/g (microporosity) may be achieved, but mesoporosity does not appear or it happens under no control. The research group has developed a method to obtain mesoporous solids from any kind of POM based salt. Method is quite simple and synthesis reaction, according to the cation used, is controlled by temperature and pH.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New method for evaluating the durability of concrete by using conductive gelsThe main system innovation is the use of ion conductive gels as reservoirs of chlorides in migration assays. Until now the techniques had to start with the full saturation of the specimen and keeping it in contact with a chloride ions solution during diffusion or migration tests. This guaranteed the absence of other transport mechanisms (such as capillary absorption) and avoided surface moisture changes. This new method is simple to implement and allows the elimination of these requirements. Another innovative feature is that the system allows greater measuring accuracy of the advancing chloride front, because this advance occurs more homogeneously than in conventional tests in contact with liquid solutions.

University of Huelva posted this:New method for manufacturing magnetic cores by powder metallurgyMagnetic cores in amorphous state are usually produced by placing together very thin amorphous ribbons from a material obtained by the melt-spinning technique. The new patented method produces the amorphous material by mechanical alloying, a traditional process in the powder metallurgy field. This technique allows a higher control on the amorphisation process and the properties of the amorphous obtained powders. These powders are then consolidated by the very quick process known as Electrical Resistance Sintering (also Electrical Discharge Consolidation/Sintering can be used). A final amorphous material, without the typical frontier between ribbons of melt spinned materials, which clearly affect properties, is obtained.
University of Huelva posted this:New method for manufacturing powder metallurgy magnetsThe conventional method of press followed by furnace sintering is now substituted by an electrical consolidation method. This allows joining in a single step the previous pressing/sintering processes, and, due to the promptness of the process, the use of controlled atmospheres is not necessary. The steps of magnetization, and eventual thermal treatments, can be carried out in the same container, without being necessary to manipulate the product.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New method for producing non-toxic and biodegradable nanopigmentsThis method has two stages: 1) Dispersion of, at least, an inorganic material in water. 2) Addition of, at least, an organic coloring solubilized by agitation. The following parameters might be changed in order to obtain different kinds of nanopigments: • Inorganic material concentration. • Organic coloring concentration. • pH. • Temperature. • Ionic strength. The optical response of nanopigments changes as a function of the particle size of the inorganic material (or materials) used by the diffusion. This method makes it possible to produce new hybrid nanopigments with optical and colloidal properties for tailored applications. Mainly, the customizaton of the behaviour of this materials is achieved by controlling organic/inorganic ratio in the material. The morphology of the material is hybrid (laminar/fibrillar). The organic coloring is selected among different types: azoic complexes, metallic, sulphurose, iminoquinone, antraquinone, ftalocianine, etc. In general words, they can be both natural or synthetic. Products can be used in printing inks, painting and dyes, paper, synthetic or natural fibers, polymer materials, cosmetics, etc. With this method the following features can be achieved: Color range control: Through the control over the different spectral species, the optical response is modified too, so the color range can be enlarged. Increase in the colouring power: The ability of the material for increasing the absorption on the surface is linked to three parameters. First, absorption coefficient of the nanopigment in relation to the coloring solution coefficient. Second, light dispersion caused by nanoparticles and addtiional coverage of the surface to fill. Third, reology and fisico-chemical properties of the material are able to obtain homogeneous dispersions. Environmental impact reduction: Some of the usual pigments contain heavy metals in its composition while inorganic solids used in this method are free of heavy metals and can even be used in cosmetics. Natural coloring can be combined with these nanopigments and obtain a new product which will be environmental safe.
