xrqtc posted this:Polymorphism Prediction in Crystal Systems of Technological InterestCurrent polymorphism studies are being carried out using one of the following three alternatives: atom-atom potentials, DFT (Density Functional Theory) calculations and ad-hoc potentials. However, all of them have serious disadvantatges. 1) with software that uses atom-atom potentials: Advantages: fast and capable of working with large molecules. Disadvantages: the "blind tests" carried out by the "Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre" are giving a 50% maximum success in the predictions. 2) with software based on DFT calculations: Advantages: good results Disadvantages: they are computationally very slow, so they are only used for very simple molecules compared with drug molecules. In addition, they have errors predicting van der Waals interactions and weak hydrogen bridges if not corrected empirically. 3) with software using ad hoc potentials for each molecule obtained from systematic exploration of the surface potential of intermolecular interactions: Advantages: efficient and faster. Disadvantages: some potentials should be calculated for each molecule studied, which are complex and slow, and is not general. The approach presented here is new and unique because the potential Pixel has never been used before for drawing polymorphic predictions and it has shown to present the advantages of all the alternatives combined. This is the first research group which has brought the potential Pixel to this level of calculation. The potential calculations and the applicability of the methode based on pixels have the same quality that the sophisticated ab initio based potential calculations. Besides, this is much faster than DFT (Functional-Based Theory)-based and ad hoc potentials ..
NANOMYP posted this:PolymP®-Active (Zn): Polymeric particles to reduce dentin hypersensitivityPolymP®-Active (Zn) is a breakthrough material that we have just patented for potentially treating dentin hypersensitivity. This new material (based on biocompatible polymeric particles) shows, among many others, the following key benefits: -Induces natural remineralization in few hours enhancing the precipitation of natural minerals that are not dissolved by saliva. -Low Mohs hardness: Do not result in dentin or enamel abrasion. -Fully occludes dentinal tubules enhancing surface nanohardness. -Possess antibacterial activity. -Inhibits dentin metalloproteinases, preventing the accelerated destruction of dentin. From a regulatory standpoint, the product could be developed as a cosmetic.
Ivan Rodriguez Rosello posted this:Polyurethane adhesives with enhanced adhesion and mechanical properties due to the addition of very small amounts of graphenic carbon materialsPolyurethane adhesives are widely used in industry for bonding materials in the footwear, electronics, renewable energy, aeronautics, and construction industries, as well as in composite materials. However, they have limitations due to their mechanical properties and stiffness. Researchers at the university have developed a process to add different graphenic carbon materials to polyurethane adhesives in a very small amount (less than 0.1% by weight). In this way, an adhesive with improved thermal and mechanical properties (mainly toughness), and notably increased adhesion properties have been obtained. The resulting adhesives have been tested for verifying their new properties. These properties are ideal for use in high-performance applications, such as in the electronic components industry.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Portable device to measure the displacement maps on surfaces in the three spatial directionsA Spanish research group from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications of the University of Alcalá along with a Spanish research group from the Department of Mechanical and Mining Engineering of the University of Jaén has developed a portable optoelectronic device to measure the displacement of each surface element in an object when is subjected to deformation. In particular, the device allows obtaining maps of long range displacement (greater than mm) in dynamic regime (in real time). Thus this system is very useful in the experimental study of the materials’ mechanical properties, especially if they suffer large deformations at high speed. It is a computationally simpler alternative and more inexpensive than the digital mapping technique for 3D images which is currently the only one allowing such measures. The group seeks licensing agreements, collaborative and commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Potyvirus viral detection kitCSIC and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a method for the detection and quantification of all species of the viral genus Potyvirus present in plant samples. The different species of the genus Potyvirus cause losses of up to 90% of production in crops of high economic interest, such as potato, maize or sugar cane. So far, the only way to identify that the crop was being attacked by a virus of the genus Potyvirus was to make specific detections for each species of the genus. With this new system it is possible to determine if in the samples coming from a culture there is presence of one of the 148 known species of the genus Potyvirus or of some unknown variant of these species. Companies in the agro-food sector interested in incorporating this kit for viral detection are being sought. An offer for Patent Licensing
University of Huelva posted this:Power supply system controlled from internet for devices connected to a lanNowadays there are devices that allow the control of devices connected to a network from the own network. The classical method to access them from a different network is the redirection of the corresponding TCP or UDP connections to local networks from the border router. The redirection requires a high level of expertise in communications to be performed. Another strategy that is often used is the creation of VPN (virtual private network). This technique allows the control of access but does not allow connections to be discriminated or the management of power supply. The proposed system allows you to control the person and the moment to access as well as the free access. The modification of these constrains can be performed in the course of an access session. In addition, the system allows the control of power supply of the device you want access to. The interface is very friendly and does not require continuous changes in the configuration of the router. The system has a local database access control and validation can be delegated to other servers using protocol validation like LDAP, IMAP, POP3, etc.

Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:Pressurized foam fire protection system for large diameter atmospheric storageOne of our partners developed a technology that provides uncompromised safety against full surface fires for large diameter atmospheric storage tanks - even if personnel, water supply, and electrical resources are vague and terrain, room, and climate are unfavorable - without polluting the environment or endangering lives The current ruling procedure is that only rim seal fires have to be taken out. In the case of a large full surface tank fire, the ruling tactic in most cases is to use whatever resources there are to contain the crisis and let the tank burn out. However in this way, the business disruption and environmental exposure is unacceptably huge. If other tanks are nearby, there is little chance of isolating a single tank if supplies are limited, and the whole terminal could be endangered.

Codes are written using luminescent materials, typically inorganic phosphors. At the recycling facility the articles are subject to excitation radiation of a specific wavelength and a few seconds/milliseconds later are subject to infra‑red detection as currently. This 2‑step process can identify articles according to the codes and sort them as specified. The benefits include increased recycling rates, the ability to sort articles by their end use (food, non-food) and composition increasing the value of such plastic. Incorporation into existing recycling facilities is easy and cost‑effective with a limited need for capital investment.
