Lignocellulose-Sulfur Composite Materials for Construction Applications (2017-025)
These composites chemically combine abundant agricultural and petrochemical wastes, allowing for practical reduction of inert wastes that can be used to either supplement or replace traditional construction materials. Approximately 7 million tons of waste sulfur and 5 million tons of waste lignocellulose are produced each year. Only a quarter of th...

Functionalized Lipid Modification of Polymer Surfaces to Affect Chemical Reactivity/Selectivity
This technology from Clemson University utilizes polymer fibers modified with lipids for use in high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Polymers have been used as stationary phases for some time, as their small pore sizes allow for better separation of particles. The key factor of this invention is in the modification of the fiber surfaces...

Surface Treatment of Polymeric and Inorganic Surfaces
Current surface modification technologies do not provide a universal technique that works on all surfaces. This patented technology features an efficient method for permanent surface modification of polymeric and inorganic material and devices using the concept of a “loops” and “tails” configuration of the primary reactive p...
