  • Patent number: 11045427
    Abstract: The present invention discloses the morphology of hollow, double-shelled submicrometer particles generated through a rapid aerosol-based process. The inner shell is an essentially hydrophobic carbon layer of nanoscale dimension (5-20 nm), and the outer shell is a hydrophilic silica layer of approximately 5-40 nm, with the shell thickness being a function of the particle size. The particles are synthesized by exploiting concepts of salt bridging to lock in a surfactant (CTAB) and carbon precursors together with iron species in the interior of a droplet. This deliberate negation of surfactant templating allows a silica shell to form extremely rapidly, sealing in the organic species in the particle interior. Subsequent pyrolysis results in a buildup of internal pressure, forcing carbonaceous species against the silica wall to form an inner shell of carbon. The incorporation of magnetic iron oxide into the shells opens up applications in external stimuli-responsive nanomaterials.

  • Patent number: 10949813
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems, and articles of manufacture to generate workscope tasks. An example apparatus includes a workscope task generator and a workscope task processor. The example workscope task generator is to process an asset health quantifier and a next mission criterion for a target asset according to a workscope transfer function to generate a set of workscope tasks for maintenance of the asset at a desired health state to satisfy the next mission criterion, the workscope tasks involving a location, a resource, and a time for maintenance of the engine. When the generated set of workscope tasks does not satisfy a lifecycle expectation for the asset, the generated set of workscope tasks is modified by the workscope task processor to generate a set of targeted, forecast workscope tasks from the modified set of workscope tasks to trigger maintenance of the engine.

  • Publication number: 20160114303
    Abstract: The creation of novel halloysite-based compositions is disclosed. In one embodiment, the hollow clay nanotubes of halloysite are loaded with nanoscale zerovalent iron particles. The resulting composition provides an effective manner of remediating chlorinated hydrocarbons. In another embodiment, the hollow clay nanotubes of halloysite are imbibed with dispersants such as DOSS and Tween 80 surfactants. The resulting composition stabilizes oil-in-water emulsions and subsequently releases the surfactants, thereby reducing interfacial tension significantly, which allows much smaller droplets to form and thus provides for more effective oil remediation.
