Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Isolation of the unsaponifiable fraction from oils and minor compoundsThe Spanish Research Council (CSIC) has developed a method to isolate the unsaponifiable fraction of fats and oils using a supported liquid extraction (SLE) column, its later purification with preparative HPLC and its characterization and quantification using gas chromatography (GC). This new procedure implies an important improvement regarding the current methods. Companies of the instrumental analytical chemistry field (scientific and technological equipment) are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
University of Vigo posted this:New wheel slip reset controller for brake systemsThe main motivation for using reset control is the overcoming of fundamental limitations or trade-offs of conventional controllers: with the conventional controllers if we want a fast braking response, the system is fragile and sensitive to uncertainties; and if we want a robust system, this requires slower braking actions. Reset control is a novel technique that achieves more robust and fester braking responses in a way that no other conventional controller is able to produce.
University of Vigo posted this:Innovative process for the removal of persistent organic pollutants present in wastewater streams.This is the first time that surfactants-based aqueous phase segregation has been proposed for the remediation of aromatic organic pollutants. Up to know, biological degradation was used alone or in combination with other physical and chemical methods (e.g. volatilization, sorption, electrokinetic, oxidation, extraction with supercritical fluids, etc.), that often entail economic and environmental disadvantages. Therefore, the proposed strategy is an environmentally friendly alternative that entails benefits such as low energy consumption, low cost, availability of reagents at bulk quantities and easy implementation.
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.
University of Vigo posted this:Valorization of whey and vinasses by producing antimicrobial extracts using biotechnological processesThis invention is based on the production of antimicrobial extracts with potential application against pathogenic microorganisms. The biotechnological production of antimicrobial metabolites was carried out using Lactobacillus plantarum strains. Two industrial wastes, whey, and wine distilled lees (or vinasses) were assayed in order to make the process economically competitive with regard to the chemical one. The extracts are mainly composed by lactic acid, 3-phenyllactic and bacteriocins. Whey was enzymatically hydrolyzed and the solutions were fermented sequentially or simultaneously. The bioprocesses were carried out continuously or discontinuously
University of Vigo posted this:Procedure for the extraction of biosurfactants contained in corn steep liquorsNowadays, most of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in the market contain chemically synthesized surfactants in its composition. In many cases, these surfactants are the same as those used in regular cleanup activities. In order to get more natural and biocompatible products, it would be interesting to include natural surfactants instead of chemical surfactants in the preparation of these pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. These biosurfactants are also present in the formulation of greener nanoparticles, replacing the chemical surfactants currently used in the preparation thereof. Most biosurfactants have antimicrobial activity, which would improve the properties of certain nanoparticles, as well as many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The main disadvantage of biosurfactants industrial production is related to the high cost compared to chemically synthesized surfactant production. The solution proposed by the Chemical Engineering research group at the University of Vigo, is the development of eco-friendly simple extraction of biosurfactant from a corn wet-milling industry byproduct, such as corn wash liquors, better known as "corn steep liquor (CSL)", which could compete in terms of cost production with its chemical counterparts.
University of Vigo posted this:Diagnosis and cleaning using laser technology for the restoration of historical monumentsSince ancient times granite has been used in historic buildings. Some restorers used to apply molten beeswax on their granite surfaces to stop imminent deterioration of the monuments. At first, this treatment was a good solution to consolidate the stone, but with time it resulted counterproductive. This method allows removal and cleaning of wax and other contaminants from porous stones in historical monuments and artworks using nondestructive means through laser technology.
University of Vigo posted this:A novel mild and efficient method to prepare ε-Caprolactam precursor of Nylon 6ε-Caprolactam, the main precursor of the synthetic fibber Nylon 6, is prepared from cyclohexanone oxime by treatment with a new salt as promoter. This procedure requires mild reaction conditions and affords excellent levels of conversion and selectivity to obtain pure ε-caprolactam. No reaction by-products are formed. The new promoter salt is cheap, no corrosive, and easy to prepare. All these characteristics makes the procedure suitable for undustrial purposes.
National Cancer Institute CRO Aviano posted this:CHEMIOTHERAPY: IRINOTECAN DRUG MONITORINGThe effectiveness of many anticancer drugs varies greatly from patient to patient and personalized dosages are required to avoid adverse side effects. The invention provides for the first time an electrochemical method to measure the concentration of the drug Irinotecan in patient's plasma and then to establish the optimal dose, with an on site test readable in real time.

University of Granada (OTRI) posted this:Method for diagnosing Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT)Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare and genetic disease in which a disorder in angiogenesis exists. A new method for the molecular diagnosis of this disease has been developed. It is based on the quantification of a set of microRNAs (miRNAs) transported by plasma exosomes, and in addition, this set allows diagnosing different variants of the disease. This new method has the advantage of providing new biomarkers that allow a rapid and reliable diagnosis of HHT, since the current methods are not valid for all the patients affected with HHT.
