Tunable Phenylacetylene Scaffolds for Ion Binding
The Phenylacetylenes are a new class of organic compounds that are able to bind negatively charged molecules. The binding of anions is an important problem in chemistry for multiple reasons. For instance, many anions (such as perchlorate, nitrate, and pertechnetate) are environmental contaminants, and recovery of anions from a feed stream may e...

Tunable Phenylacetylene Scaffolds for Ion Binding updated with additional data
This technology encompasses a series of organic compounds for use in rapid detection of ions and small molecules. These compounds have a previously unknown framework that is modular and pre-organized to bind guests in its cavity. The modular nature of the framework permits easy synthetic variation of the compound structure and several of the...

Correcting Metamorphopsia
A method and apparatus for the evaluation and measurement of metamorphopsia, a visual disorder in which images appear distorted. This invention provides a very sensitive test for metamorphopsia that detects early retinal changes at a time when therapeutic intervention may be more helpful. The test can be used on a home PC, for greater freque...

The Pupillary Dilation Response: A Tool for Assessing Sensory Performance in Humans
This tool demonstrates a correlation between the magnitude of a person’s involuntary pupil dilation and their hearing. A subject’s pupil size increases when they hear a sound, and the magnitude of the pupil increase is proportional to the intensity of the sound. The Pupillary Dilation Response tool can use this correlation to test hearing...
