  • Patent number: 8436116
    Abstract: One aspect of the present invention relates to polymers containing redox-responsive moieties (such as, ferrocene). In certain embodiments, the present invention relates to in-situ continuous separation systems which use such redox-responsive polymers for low-molecular weight alcohol removal from an aqueous mixture; such systems enhance the production of low-molecular weight alcohols by reducing the product inhibition effects that plague their production from bio-mass by fermentation.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: February 27, 2009
    Date of Patent: May 7, 2013
    Assignee: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    Inventors: Abhinav Akhoury, Lev E. Bromberg, Trevor Alan Hatton
