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...

Fiber Bundle Cartridges as Chemical Separation Media
Monolithic cartridges including a plurality of nominally aligned polymer fibers can be used as stationary phase materials for liquid chromatography separations. Bundles of fibers are packed together so as to form capillary channels between the fibers. Different polymer compositions permit the “chemical tuning” of the separation process....

Ultrahydrophobic Self-cleaning Materials & Surfaces
Many materials – fibers, metals, synthetics and textiles – can have improved performance with the ability to repel water and contaminants. This technology provides a process for the modification of material exteriors by the addition of nano-sized or micro-sized particles to create the “lotus effect” – a surface that in...
