110036: Reactor for Incompatible Gases

Microorganisms that produce biofuels may be used to produce a wide array of gasoline alternatives. Higher alcohols, like isobutanol, are good candidates for alternative fuels because their energy density and octane value are similar to gasoline. Isobutanol has a high octane rating, is oxygenated, non-hygroscopic, and non-corrosive. The autotrop...

050097: Customizable and Renewable Nanostructured Interface for Bioelectronic Applications

Biomimetic interfaces consisting of synthetic lipid membranes allow proteins to be immobilized in an active conformation on a surface. The protein's activity is transduced into an electrical signal using electrochemical techniques to render a biosensor. Biomimetic interfaces that contain an upper layer of a hydrophobic lipid membrane, and a hyd...
