This naturally sourced red pigment is formed when an extract from a commonly cultivated plant is mixed with a small amount of alcohol. This naturally sourced pigment can be used as a food colorant or for the cosmetic industry. It is water soluable and stable when exposed to extended periods of heat and light, as well as in mildly acidic or basic conditions.
A new synthetic method to produce free-standing, flexible nanoporous carbon films from non-toxic, cheap, commercially available starting materials. Using a patent pending method, large-area films of variable thickness can be created with tunable pore size/distributions tailored for the desired application.
High Performance Materials for Reversible Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
A new La0.3Ca0.7Cr0.3Fe0.7O3-8 mixed-conducting perovskite oxide as an oxygen and fuel electrode for reversible solid oxide fuel cells. The material has been found to be excellent for reversible symmetrical fuel cells, working very well as oxygen and fuel electrode in both fuel cell and electrolysis mode.
Inertial Navigation for Directional Downhole Drilling
A method for dynamically re-aligning an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) used for directional downhole drilling. IMUs are state-of-the-art devices for providing directional information and are widely used in ground, air, space and sea navigation. This technology provides improved accuracy over conventional magnetometer-based navigation systems in a low-power, miniaturized device that is easily adaptable to current drilling assemblies.
Carbon Emissions Reduction In Situ Bitumen Recovery
A novel technique to eliminate carbon dioxide emissions in Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) process by applying a Natural Gas (NG) Decarbonization process. This technology drastically reduces carbon emissions, reduces water footprint and has the potential to generate new income for the oil industry by producing carbon black as by-products.
Ceramic Based Mixed Proton-Electronic Conductor for Solid State Devices
Through a combination of unique chemical elements, inventors have discovered a novel series of ceramics with pervoskite-like structures capable of both proton and electron conduction at elevated temperatures.
Reservoir Characterization Using Fuzzy Ranking and an Artificial Neural Network
A novel algorithm to more accurately determine the physical properties of oil reservoirs than widely employed methods such as linear and non-linear regression analysis. Employing a combination of fuzzy ranking and artificial neural networks, this technology can accurately model reservoir characteristics such as porosity, permeability and saturation.
Novel Planar Microelectrodes with Unique Morphological Structure for Enhanced Neural Recording
Fabricated planar microelectrodes that allow non-invasive recording of neuronal activities over an extended time period, and at a resolution up to 15 times higher than any similar commercially available devices.
Image Processing Technique for Lung Lobes Segmentation
A novel algorithm for segmenting diseased lung lobes using a hybrid 2D/3D approach that primarily works by modelling complete lung fissure surfaces from partial fissures observed in individual computed tomography (CT) images.
Novel Class of Molecules Targeting a Broad Range of Infections
A library of small molecule pro-drugs that are converted into toxic metabolites by enzymes unique to bacteria and protozoa but not found in humans, potentially making these drugs less toxic to the host.
Novel Anti-Fungal Azole Derivatives with Reduced Cardiotoxicity
An array of novel modified azole derivatives displaying reduced cardiotoxicity in vitro. These novel therapeutic agents exhibit comparable (or greater) anti-fungal activity compared to common anti-fungal agents such as miconazole.
