These molecules present not only interesting electronic properties which make them active for the manufacture of solar cells, specifically organic photovoltaic cells, but also an intense blue color which allows it so be used as a dye in the textile industry. Industrial partners from the energy, electronic and textile are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Suspension containing gold or silver nanoparticles or a mixture thereof and a production method thereofThe present invention relates to a process for the preparation of nanosilver and nanogold using an aqueous extract of dog rose, white grape and knotweed. Substances which were extracted from these plants act both as reducer of silver and gold ions and stabilizing agent of forming silver and gold nanodispersion, preventing them from agglomeration and inhibiting their growth, so that the resulting particle size does not exceed 100 nm.

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.

The present invention provides for these purposes: a) The use of novel antifungals (COS and chitosan). b) The combined use (synergical) with existing antifungals (e.g. fluconazole) to reduce their doses. c) The use of COS and chitosan (alone or in combination with existing synergical antifungals) with an inhibitor of ARL1 gene to increase the sensitivity of fungi (including yeast) or their chitosan oligosaccharides (COS). Several experiments carried out have shown the significant synergistic effect of the combination object of the present invention (chitosan or COS, and an inhibitor of ARL1 gene or a currently used antifungal such as fluconazole) in inhibiting growth of filamentous fungi and yeast. Chitosan and COS are non-toxic for mammals, and therefore, they have a particular interest to use them as antifungal agents in some applications.
