The investigators have found cost-effective isothermal compression and expansion of gaseous streams is achievable through vasculatures with lung-like gas flow paths embedded in phase change material (PCM) or thermochemical materials. Their design is highly scalable; a patent has been applied for. In previous attempts to obtain isothermal compression / expansion, temperature increase and decrease was […]

Fault detection and diagnosis is essential across diverse industries.  They increase safety and reduce costs, replacing current scheduled-based maintenance strategies which cost billions yearly. Dr. Nataraj’s fault detection system invention provides a software-based method for diagnosing the nature and magnitude of faults within dynamic mechanical and electrical systems. The software uses measured data from already […]

Villanova University scientist, Qianhong Wu has developed a novel method to assess the results of a BAFMD test, including a system and device that evaluate the output and results of an FMD process. It produces a diagnostic tool that overcomes the previous issues of interpreting an FMD test. There is significant potential for the tool […]

Unmet Need  Syntheses of phenethylamines in a rapid and efficient manner.  Dr. Adejare’s demonstrated technology can save time, reagents, and number of steps in syntheses of arylalkylamines.  The pharmaceutically relevant chemical classes include: phenylethylamines, alpha-alkylphenylethylamines, tryptamines, and arylcyclohexylamines. Opportunity  Many fine chemicals, pharmaceutical products, and / or their intermediates can be synthesized using this technology.  […]
