Korea Institute of Energy Research posted this:Apparatus for producing silicon nanocrystals based on inductively coupled plasma.Researchers at the Korea Institute of Energy Research have developed a new apparatus for producing silicon nanocrystals based on inductively coupled plasma. Silicon nanocrystals have been widely investigated for several years because of their many interesting properties and potential use in several applications. Recently, silicon nanocrystals have been used in solar cells and light emitting device (LEDs). Silicon is an environmentally friendly material and is utilised for various applications in the field of electronic materials. The field of silicon nanocrystal production has grown enormously of late, in response to the observation of quantum confinement in porous silicon. Silicon is already widely used in the semiconductor industry, in large part because of its nontoxic properties and abundance, being the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Due to the high capacity of silicon paired with its relatively environmentally friendly properties it is an ideal material for use as a replacement to more commonly used environmentally costly materials. The common process of producing silicon nanocrystals can be classified into three distinct areas: solid-state reaction, liquid state reaction, and vapour state reaction. The solid-state reaction is the process whereby a thin film of SiO2, Si3N4 or the like containing excess Silicon (Si) is formed and subjected to heat treatment to enable the condensation of silicon and subsequent formation of silicon nanocrystals in a SiO2, Si3N4 or SiC matrix. In the liquid state reaction, silicon nanocrystals are prepared via a chemical reaction of silicon compounds, this is done through the application of variant methods, for example the high-temperature supercritical method. In the vapour state reaction, silicon nanocrystals are prepared by passing a silane compound gas through a high energy region such as laser or plasma. In the case of all three traditional silicon nanocrystals reaction methods (solid, liquid and gas) the process incurs significant cost due to the substantial need for heat energy and expensive deposition equipment. What’s more, in the liquid State reaction issues arise due to the severe difficulty in controlling particle size, which in turn leads to poor crystallinity quality. The vapour state reaction incurs further issues due to the extreme use of energy resulting in aggregated nanocrystals and the formation of secondary particles. To overcome the inherent issues of solid, liquid and vapour silicon nanocrystal reactions non-thermal plasma, such as inductively coupled plasma (IPC) has begun to be used. However, the conventional ICP-based apparatus has limitations and can result in issues pertaining to the management of the particle size of silicon nanocrystals, as well as extending reaction time and deteriorating silicon nanocrystal quality. To combat the aforementioned limitations in silicon nanocrystal production a new apparatus method has been designed, which can minimise plasma diffusion inside the reactor during production using ICP to improve the particle size characteristics and quality of the silicon nanocrystals.
Sandra Moczulska posted this:Application and method of producing cyclic compounds in olefin metathesis reactionThe olefin metathesis reaction has many advantages, the most important of which is the fact that it shortens the synthesis path by reducing the number of required steps and this lowers the cost of obtaining the target product. Unfortunately, the industrial application of the olefin metathesis reaction (especially in the production of macrocyclic rings in the RCM reaction) is currently experiencing difficulties such as: - lack of selectivity and product competition (a major problem with RCMs leading to large macrocyclic rings to minimize the problem of high dilution, but it clearly increases the cost of the process) - displacement of reaction equilibrium (RCM reaction is an equilibrium process, so to move the process towards the formation of products it is necessary to react under reduced pressure) - migration of double bond C = C (migration within the substrates as well as target product due to side reactions. This inconvenience can be eliminated by using, for example, quinones - unfortunately, this elimination is only partial.) - the need to use a homogeneous ruthenium catalyst (a large amount of catalyst is required to reach the reaction, reaching over 20 mol%). The present invention relates to a process for the production of cyclic compounds in the olefin metathesis reaction and the use of ruthenium catalysts for the production of cyclic olefins in olefin metathesis reactions. The solution through optimization, overcomes the current problems. The expected product is obtained with high efficiency and selectivity. The method can find extensive use in organic synthesis, requiring metathetic ring closure (RCM), among others in the fragrance industry. Advantages of the presented solution from UW: 1. high process efficiency 2. high selectivity 3. low cost of synthesis

IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Aquatic ecotoxicology and ecological risk assessmentEcotoxicology is a multidisciplinary science which aims to assess how interaction between pollutants and the environment affects ecosystems, taking into account the susceptibility of individuals, populations and communities to be affected by and recover from any type of toxic stress. Assessing ecological risk from pollutants requires preliminary research into the emission and transport of contaminating substances in the environment and the exposure to which live organisms may be subjected. Likewise, laboratory and/or field experiments help evaluate the toxic effects caused by different pollutants and exposure patterns. Finally, the results of these studies are combined to calculate the likelihood of ecosystems being affected by the use of potentially toxic substances.

However, to date, these systems still fall short of ensuring tight glycemic control in many patients, particularly in patients with high glucose variability. The presented clinically optimized blood glucose prediction technology, developed at the Weizamnn Institute of Science, provides for improved prediction accuracy, regardless of patient age and disease severity, and outperforms standard models, particularly in high-risk patient populations. The technology can be easily integrated into existing artificial pancreas systems and bears the potential of enhancing disease management and patient quality of life, translating to the long-term clinical benefits of stable glycemia.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Artificial reefs for safe and sustainable marine habitat regenerationA multidisciplinary group of researchers from the University of Alicante has developed a new system for the formation of artificial marine reefs and underwater structures with porous calcareous coating using electric current. The system is characterised by the fact that it starts from a lightweight metal base of any geometric shape –with the possibility of assembly– and the final structure can be easily transported and placed, or fabricated in-situ. During the processing stage, substances are released into the environment that favour the development of phytoplankton and are harmless to the habitat, thus establishing a greater diversity of marine species on the structure itself. This device allows the restoration of marine ecosystems, the purification of marine waters in aquaculture farms, as well as the sustainable exploitation of marine leisure (recreational diving). Companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation through licensing agreements are being sought.

It is a road safety system that ensures that the exit access of the vehicles from the parking is performed safely for pedestrians, by monitoring the different access points to the parking, using a stereoscopic vision system with infrared lighting. The images provided by the stereoscopic vision system are processed by a computer, obtaining information regarding the presence of pedestrians in the vicinity of the monitored access point. This information is used to act on a traffic light that controls the exit access of vehicles. The group looks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the sector of transport infrastructure and traffic safety.
Yeda posted this:Artificial Womb Device for Extended Mammalian EmbryogenesisMammalian embryos develop inside the uterine environment, making them inaccessible for direct monitoring and perturbations. Therefore, the full in-depth understanding of the developmental process that occurs post embryo implantation in the uterus remains limited. The lab of Prof. Jacob Hanna recently developed a culture system that enables growing mouse embryos from pre-gastrulation to advanced organogenesis stages, in a manner that faithfully recapitulates the normal in-uterus developmental process. This provides a powerful tool to characterize the effect of different perturbations on early mammalian development that can be combined with genetic modification, chemical screens, tissue manipulation, and microscopy methods. In the future, the system could also be used to study the development of additional mammalian species, and possibly provide a tool for the development of organ cultures for biomedical purposes.
