University of Vigo posted this:New non-destructive method for “in situ” monitoring of anticorrosive protection of organic coatingsThe main novelty of the device and procedure is the new portable sensor adaptable to virtually any surface. The device, fixable by vacuum to the surface under study, makes possible the measurement of the electrochemical interfacial impedance, that is the main parameter of interest for adherence quality and anti-corrosion performance.

Institut Català d'Investigació Química (ICIQ) posted this:Photochemical metal-free method of amination of C-H bondsA new method for the metal-free amination of C-H bonds has been developed. The method uses readily available reagents (iodine, trilfuoromethylsuylfonamide, diacetoxyiodobenzene) and light to insert a sulfonamide moiety into a C-H bond. the method has been successfully used in the preparation of various APIs (memantine, rasagiline, sertraline). The method takes place in mild conditions and allows avoiding the use of transition metal catalysis and multiple-steps procedures. Partners are sought for the joint development of commercial applications of the method.

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 Vigo posted this:Lateral connection system by removable clamps for I or H profilesThe presented system allows detachable lateral connections, at right angles, type ‘cross beam to column flange’ of I and H standard profiles made of steel. The system uses standard mounting clamps without previous specific machining operations (as may be welding or drilling).
University of Vigo posted this:Removable and reconfigurable system for corner connection of square tube profilesThis removable connection system can be adapted to the size of the section, by adjusting the length of the connecting bolts, using the same flanges. Is usable for a wide range of standard profiles, which avoids the need for a flange size for each profile section.
University of Vigo posted this:Removable system for continuous connection of square tube profilesThe removable system allows mounting on each profile separately, joining then in continuity with plates at the head of each of the flanges. The use of anti-buckling clamps prevents local buckling of the walls of the profiles, associated with tightening of flanges. Flanges have nerves to reduce stresses. The same flanges are valid for connecting different sized sections of square tube profiles.
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.
DIT Hothouse posted this:iSeal: Advanced Surface Treatment for Protection against TribocorrosionThis invention is based on the application of a hybrid organic/inorganic treatment onto an exposed surface – either as a stand-alone treatment or as a sealant. The treatment is applied using an electrochemical deposition technique, allowing for the development of conformal coatings, irrespective of design complexity. Layer thicknesses are low (10-100nm) but resistance in corrosive marine environments indicate corrosion rates comparable to technologies currently employed by the aerospace and automotive industries. Corrosion rates are reduced by between 103 and 105 times, dependant on the nature of the porous coating. Tests on metallic coatings indicated a reduction in corrosion rates of approximately 103-104 while tests on ceramic coatings indicated a reduction in corrosion rates of approximately 105. By applying the hybrid treatment as a sealant treatment onto a porous wear resistant coating, concerns regarding the effect of mechanical damage are dramatically reduced. In addition, surface roughness levels are similar to electropolished finishes.
