Phenyl SAMMS is one such high uptake, selective binding substrate. Self-Assembled Monolayers on Mesoporous Supports (SAMMS) are an excellent sorbent material with extremely high surface area. However, the manufacturing costs of SAMMS is quite high, making it impractical for a disposable application and limited in reusable applicati...Mon, 11 Apr 2011 09:31:27 GMTtechtran@uoregon.edu Phenylacetylene Scaffolds for Ion Binding, 08 Apr 2011 13:24:07 GMTtechtran@uoregon.edu CO2 Visualization Apparatus, 08 Apr 2011 13:14:02 GMTtechtran@uoregon.edu Proton Sponge Reagent, 08 Apr 2011 13:14:02 GMTtechtran@uoregon.edu Shade Control System weather-responsive shade control system is software that controls one or more motorized window and/or skylight shade devices to provide 1) optimum interior daylighting conditions, 2) control direct sun glare, and 3) control heat gain inside the building based on whether the building needs heating or cooling. The software uses light sensors to determine whether the sky is cloudy or clear, and whether interior daylight illumination is within, above, or below a desired range. The software analyzes this data, and includes information regarding the position of the sun and which directi...Fri, 08 Apr 2011 13:14:01 GMTtechtran@uoregon.edu Photovoltaic Efficiency by Heterojunction Assisted Impact Ionization Charge multiplication by impact ionization (II) produces ~1% of the photogenerated charge in silicon photovoltaic (PV) devices under solar illumination and ~30% for photons above the silicon direct band gap. Despite these observations, few efforts have been reported to find materials and structures that optimize the rate of II and thereby convert a larger fraction of the solar spectrum to useful electrical energy. In contrast, the dramatically increased rate of II near band offsets in reverse-biased heterojunctions has been used extensively to improve the efficiency of avalanche photod...Fri, 08 Apr 2011 13:14:00 GMTtechtran@uoregon.edu Fenton's Reagent Fenton's reagent is used to oxidize potassium hydrogen tartrate, producing carbon dioxide in an exothermic reaction.
