  • Publication number: 20200370204
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a method of generating a combinatorial library of products having a diverse array of properties. In particular, the method comprises: (a) selecting one or more pairs of reactants comprising complementary functional groups; (b) mapping all possible bond arrangements between the complementary functional groups of each pair to provide a library of possible products; (c) analyzing one or more properties of each possible product to select one or more products with desired properties (desired products); and (d) synthesizing the one or more desired products. Further disclosed herein is a method that involves the retrosynthetic reduction of a complex molecule into simple starting materials.

  • Patent number: 10325490
    Abstract: A method and system for providing a driving condition alert to vehicle drivers and others are disclosed. The alert is provided based on road location and attribute data; real-time, historic, and forecast traffic data; real-time, historic, and forecast weather data; and/or scheduled and unscheduled event data. The alert may include information indicating the reason for the alert provided. In addition, the alert may include a relative scale of hazard (e.g., a scale of 1-10 with 1 representing no hazard and 10 representing the highest hazardous condition). As a result of receiving the alert, the driver may adjust their route or driving behavior.

  • Publication number: 20190167440
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for distracting tissue. The devices and methods may include insertion of first and second elongated members into the space between two tissue layers, with an augmenting elongated member inserted therebetween to form a distraction device between the tissues to be distracted. The distraction device defines a generally annular configuration, with a locking member secured to one of the elongated members at a plurality of locations to maintain the distraction device in the generally annular configuration. The augmenting elongated member may be shorter than the first and second elongated members such that a window is defined between the proximal and distal ends of the augmenting elongated member when the distraction device and the first and second elongated members are in the generally annular configuration. Bone graft material or bone filler may be introduced into the interior of the distraction device through the window.

  • Publication number: 20180347843
    Abstract: Methods and systems for prognostic analysis in electromechanical and environmental control equipment in building management systems are described. In performing the prognostic analysis, the prognostics system acquires leading indicator input data representing the monitored signals associated with the target equipment and determine a prognostics model corresponding to the target equipment. The prognostics system applies the prognostics model to the leading indicator input data to determine a condition of the target equipment. The condition includes a current condition and/or a future condition of the target equipment. The prognostics system also outputs the condition of the target equipment to a database for accessing by a remote device or operator.
