UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Novel and simple procedure for dispersing graphene derivatives in chemically curable resins.The Laboratory of Adhesion and Adhesives of the University of Alicante and the company Dental Global Training, have developed a new procedure to incorporate efficiently graphene derivatives (nanofibers, nanosheets, nanoparticles) in chemically cured resins by using an in situ polymerization technique. The method is very simple and fast, it provides an excellent dispersion of the graphene derivatives in both the solid components of the resin and in the cured polymer matrix, and is entirely friendly with the environment. The novel method does not require the use of organic solvents nor water, ultrasounds, and high pressure/temperature. The resulting resin composites show excellent mechanical properties, good wear resistance, easy manipulation and increase the insolubility in oral fluids, and therefor they have special interest in applications in odontology, traumatology and non-medical applications too (automobile, construction, civil engineering, aeronautics, space engineering, electronics and optics). It is looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for its commercial exploitation.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:New process for the manufacture of electrodes from superporous nanostructured carbon materialsSpanish University have developed a process for the manufacture of electrodes from superporous nanostructured carbon materials. The process uses electrospraying technique to deposit a suspension of a carbon material over a collector. This method facilitates processing superporous nanostructured carbon materials due to its high efficiency and less complexities compared to conventional techniques. The electrodes obtained can be used in energy storage or analytical sensors in commercial devices.
Spanish National Research Council posted this:Energy harvesting from ambient vibrations for wireless sensors applicationResearchers from the Spanish National Research Council at the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute (IMB-CNM) have recently developed a mechanical energy harvesting device by using a low-cost microelectronic fabrication process. The device acts as an electrical generator and is driven by environmentally-available mechanical energy such as ambient vibrations. Due to its flexibility and small size, it is of easy integration as power generator permitting the provision of full power autonomy to any wireless sensor node during its lifecycle into a network infrastructure following the philosophy “install and forget”. Industrial partners are being sought to exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Low cost sensors for the detection of gaseous hydrogen• New simple preparation method which does not require sophisticated instrumental techniques. • The procedure use low-cost materials and optimizes the loading of the metals employed. • This technology is efficient, producing robust and reliable sensors with high signal-to-response ratio and low cost. • The CNT and nanoparticle suspensions needed are stable and may be stored over long periods of time.
Air Products posted this:Hydrogen Storage Liquid has 3X the Energy Density of Lithium Ion BatteriesThis product delivers hydrogen with an extra degree of safety directly to fuel-cells on-demand. New designs are enabled since this "Liquid-Carrier for Hydrogen" is stored in tanks of any shape. The economics of this system have been validated by DOE and is among the least expensive methods of high-volume hydrogen storage. When loaded with hydrogen from renewable sources this technology delivers a complete green solution since the carbon portions of the molecules are completely re-used. With a well-to-wheels efficiency comparable to gasoline or EVs, this technology can deliver world-class efficiency.
