  • Publication number: 20120201913
    Abstract: According to this invention, plants of the genus Triodia are harvested for use as a renewable energy source or as a means of carbon sequestration. Triodia is a hummock-forming grass endemic to Australia, commonly known as spinifex. It is an abundant perennial plant which grows in semi-arid and arid regions. The novel use of Triodia as a biofuel feedstock has many advantages over the prior art. Being perennial, there is no need to plant and fertilise crops. The plants can be continuously harvested without damaging the soil. Triodia grows well with even small amounts of natural rainfall.

  • Patent number: 7875212
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide polymer matrix nanocomposites reinforced with nano-scale materials such as nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes and methods of fabricating. The nanomaterials are provided within relatively low weight fractions, for example in the range of approximately 0.01 to about 0.4% by weight and distributed within the matrix by a magnetic mixing procedure to provide substantially uniform reinforcement of the nanocomposites. Advantageously, these nanocomposites provide significantly enhanced tensile strength, strain to failure, and fracture toughness over corresponding neat matrices.

  • Patent number: 5645736
    Abstract: A method is shown for polishing a workpiece such as a semiconductor wafer. A polishing composition is first formed which includes (1) a polishing media particle; and (2) a film forming binder for suspending the particle and forming a temporary film on an exposed surface of the workpiece, the temporary film being dissolvable in a subsequently applied polishing wash, whereby the polishing media particle is freed to polish the workpiece. The polishing composition is applied to the surface of the semiconductor wafer in a spin coating operation and thereafter cured in a hot plate bake or a furnace operation. In order to polish the workpiece, a polishing wash is applied to either or both of the surface of the workpiece or a polishing pad and thereafter causing the pad to be sufficiently proximate to the surface of the workpiece at a pressure and for a time sufficient to polish and planarize the workpiece.
