Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:New material based on manganese oxide with gas generation and high temperature regeneration capacityCSIC has developed a material based on a mixture of metal oxides. This new material is capable of releasing oxygen gas during its reduction through an endothermic process and regenerating in air at high temperature (800-1000 ºC) releasing energy. The material behaves in a stable manner in successive reduction-oxidation cycles and has improved properties with respect to other similar materials available for processes in this type of chemical loops. Companies interested in patent licensing are sought for the development and use of materials capable of releasing oxygen gas. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:New system to modulate the degree of silencing of a gene of interest in plantsCSIC and UPV have developed a system that allows modulating the degree of silencing of any gene that is of interest in plants. Until now, the technologies used to regulate gene expression in plants only allowed to induce a high degree of silencing, but the level of silencing had not been regulated. This new system, through the use of small artificial RNAs (sRNAs), modulates the degree to which gene silencing occurs. This technology has a special interest in the case of wanting to silence a lethal gene and, for example, when the gene that is silenced is regulating the flowering time. Companies interested in patent licensing are sought for the development. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Method for the manufacture of nanostructured metal coatingsCSIC and the University of Oporto have developed a method that combines lithographic printing techniques, aluminium anodizing for the manufacture of highly ordered nanoporous alumina templates and metal sputtering by which metal nanostructures with the same ordering pattern are obtained. These nanostructures can be used in different magnetic and nanoelectronic devices. Industrial partners from the nanotechnology are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Production of isophorone derivatives by fungal peroxygenasesCSIC has developed a biocatalytic transformation of isophorone (3,5,5-trimethylcyclohex-2-en-1-one) and 4-hydroxyisophorone (4HIP) to selectively produce 4-hydroxyisophorone and 4-ketoisophorone (4KIP), valuable products for pharmaceutical, flavor and fragrance industry. The biocatalysts employed are unspecific peroxygenases from the fungi or recombinant proteins expressed in Aspergillus oryzae. Industrial partners from pharmaceutical, flavour or fragance industry are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Power Switch for high radiation EnvironmentsCSIC through the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica, has developed a novel JFET (Junction Field-Effect Transistor) which is very suitable to be used in high-radiation-level environments such as Space, high-flying aircraft, particles accelerator or radio-medical equipment. Due to its particular configuration, the device presents very high radiation hardness. Industrial partners from the electronic industry focused on radiation detection are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Biocompatible self-generating cell stimulatorCSIC through the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica, has developed a device based on nanogenerators for electrical cells stimulation without the need of electrodes or bulky devices. The device is biocompatible and, among its multiple applications, is able to actuate in medical prostheses as an enhancer of cellular growth and proliferation, which permits an early lesion recovery (such as a fracture or wound). Industrial partners dedicated to the development of medical devices for cells stimulation, in particular, focused onto therapeutic treatments of non-healing wounds, are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Systems and applications based on indoor positioning via led-lightingThe use of LED lamps available for lighting of different parts of a building or room in such a way as to allow the transmission of very high-frequency codes non-perceptible by humans together with the illumination lights. These codes (one unique code for each LED lamp) will be decoded by light detectors included in smart-devices, or by detectors designed particularly for this purpose. From the code information, the device positioning can be determined with high precision.
