  • Patent number: 9064994
    Abstract: Self-corrugating laminates useful in the manufacture of thermoelectric devices are disclosed. The laminates include an upper and a lower shrinkable film layer and a non-shrinkable core with a thermoelectric pattern formed thereon bonded between said upper and lower shrinkable film along bond lines arranged parallel, substantially parallel, radially, or annularly. The bond lines that bond the upper shrinkable film layer to top surface of the nonshrinkable core are staggered relative to the bond lines that bond the lower shrinkable film layer to the bottom surface of the non-shrinkable core such that upon shrinkage of the shrinkable film layers, structural corrugations are formed in the non-shrinkable core. Thermoelectric modules or devices and methods for forming them from the self-corrugating laminates are also described.

  • Patent number: 8969632
    Abstract: A process for making ethylene glycol by feeding reactants including 1,2-dioxygenated organic compounds, an organometallic homogeneous catalyst, and hydrogen to a hydrogenation reactor, reacting at least a portion of the reactants with hydrogen in the presence of the organometallic homogeneous catalyst to produce a reaction product mixture containing ethylene glycol, and passivating the catalyst by contacting the catalyst with a carbon monoxide to thereby suppress the formation of by-product diols other that the ethylene glycol primary product, and suppress the formation of by-product tetrols and by-product glycolaldehyde acetals; and separating at least a portion of the ethylene glycol from the reaction product mixture.

  • Patent number: 8853438
    Abstract: Formulations of solutions and processes are described to form a substrate including a dopant. In particular implementations, the dopant may include arsenic (As). In an embodiment, a dopant solution is provided that includes a solvent and a dopant. In a particular embodiment, the dopant solution may have a flashpoint that is at least approximately equal to a minimum temperature capable of causing atoms at a surface of the substrate to attach to an arsenic-containing compound of the dopant solution. In one embodiment, a number of silicon atoms at a surface of the substrate are covalently bonded to the arsenic-containing compound.
