    Abstract: Provided are functional segregated telodendrimers having, for example, two or three functional segments. The telodendrimers can have one or more crosslinking groups (e.g., reversible photocrosslinking groups). The telodendrimers can aggregate to form nanocarriers. Cargo such as drugs, imaging probes, and other materials may be sequestered in the core of the aggregates via non-covalent or covalent interactions with the telodendrimers. Such nanocarriers may be used in drug delivery applications and imaging applications.

  • Patent number: 11383402
    Abstract: A method for reinforcing and enhancing bamboo/wood materials employs a sulfuric acid hydrolysis method to prepare a nanocellulose dispersion solution; then with the nanocellulose dispersion solution having a certain concentration as a precursor, nano zinc oxide is in-situ produced on the surface of the nanocellulose; and the cellulose dispersion solution is improved by compounding. The obtained treatment solution is impregnated into the pores of bamboo/wood materials in a specific manner to play the role of filling, binding and consolidating the bamboo/wood tissues, so that the treated bamboo/wood materials have enhanced hardness, strength and dimension stability, and significantly-improved mildew- and corrosion-resistance. The method is suitable for the reinforcing and enhancing treatment of wood materials with relatively-loose texture, such as fast-growing wood and wood from a planted forest, and is also suitable for the reinforcement and restoration of slightly-rotten wood materials.

  • Patent number: 10010080
    Abstract: This invention is a process for the manufacture of water stable, partially polymerized antimicrobial silanol quaternary ammonium compounds (SQACs) and their trisilanol, polysiloxanol and water soluble polysiloxane derivatives thereof. Partial polymerization is accomplished by allowing the aqueous SQAC product solution to polymerize at conditions that will substantially convert all the chlorosilanol monomer to a copolymer of the SQAC, thus reducing the toxicity of the solution greatly. A stabilizing agent is added either before or after the partial polymerization. The stabilizing agent is selected from a list of antimicrobial, naturally occurring, renewable phytochemical essential oils and extracts that easily form crystal clear microemulsions when water is added to the concentrated SQAC/essential oil mixture. These non-foaming oil in water microemulsions have excellent long term storage stability, are freeze/thaw stable, remain very low in viscosity and do not phase separate or precipitate for many months.

  • Patent number: 9842136
    Abstract: A database management system (DBMS) generates a query execution plan including information indicating one or more database (DB) operations necessary to execute the query. The DBMS dynamically generates a task for executing the DB operation in execution of the query. The DBMS performs a determination processing of simultaneous-task-generation number when newly creating a task. The determination processing of simultaneous-task-generation number is to calculate the number of simultaneous task generation, which is the number of tasks that can be generated simultaneously, based on the number of tasks which can be newly generated, a first memory resource amount which is the amount of memory resources necessary to be allocated per task newly generated, and a second memory resource amount which is the number of memory resources that can be newly allocated. The number of tasks generated dynamically and simultaneously is equal to or smaller than the calculated number of simultaneously generatable tasks.
