  • Patent number: 10347476
    Abstract: Provided are synthetic dendrimer calibrants for mass spectrometry. The calibrants are distinguished by their relative ease and rapidity of synthesis, comparatively low cost, long shelf life, high purity, and amenability to batch synthesis as mixtures. The latter characteristic enables parallel preparation of higher molecular weight compounds displaying useful distributions of discrete molecular weights, thereby providing multi-point mass spectrometry calibration standards. Methods of making, tuning and using said calibrants are provided.

  • Patent number: 10319910
    Abstract: Provided is a multilayer-structured organic electroluminescent diode, and a method of manufacturing a hole transporting layer thereof. The hole transporting layer included in the organic electroluminescent diode is a thin film formed through electrochemical polymerization. The method of manufacturing the hole transporting layer includes the steps of: preparing an electrolyte; electro-polymerizing the electrolyte; controlling thickness of an electropolymerized film; and washing and drying the electropolymerized film as obtained. Specific electropolymerization parameters are set to finely regulate a crosslinking degree and reactivity of the electropolymerized film, thereby solving a prior-art problem that the crosslinking degree and reactivity of a polymer or small molecule hole transporting material in a film state cannot be effectively controlled.

  • Patent number: 10092661
    Abstract: In the present invention, a method of producing stable bare colloidal gold nanoparticles is disclosed. The nanoparticles can subsequently be subjected to partial or full surface modification. The method comprises preparation of colloidal gold nanoparticles in a liquid by employing a top-down nanofabrication method using bulk gold as a source material. The surface modification of these nanoparticles is carried out by adding one or multiple types of ligands each containing functional groups which exhibit affinity for gold nanoparticle surfaces to produce the conjugates. Because of the high efficiency and excellent stability of the nanoparticles produced by this method, the fabricated gold nanoparticle conjugates can have surface coverage with functional ligands which can be tuned to be any percent value between 0 and 100%.

  • Patent number: 9321957
    Abstract: A radiation detector can include a solid organic/plastic scintillator that enables neutron and gamma interactions to be readily distinguished via pulse-shape discrimination. Embodiments make use of a scintillator including a polymer matrix with a dispersed scintillation material exhibiting thermally activated delayed fluorescence. The scintillation material can include an organic luminescent material that is free of heavy metals and in which excited triplet states are efficiently promoted into excited singlet states by thermal energy, the excited singlet states then generating a delayed fluorescence when decaying to ground state. As a result, the scintillation material, when exposed to ionizing radiation, can produce a combination of prompt and delayed fluorescence sufficient to enable neutron and gamma interactions to be readily distinguished via pulse-shape discrimination techniques.

  • Patent number: 8828271
    Abstract: A wetness indicating adhesive composition comprising an adhesive base composition incorporating a fluorescing agent in the adhesive base composition that only fluoresces when wet, and not when dry. In one embodiment, the adhesive base composition may be composed of water soluble, or at least partially water soluble, components, and in another embodiment the adhesive base composition may be composed of water sensitive components as for example one or more water insoluble polymers and a surfactant. The fluorescing agent can either be dissolved or dispersed in the adhesive base composition, and is preferably a water soluble fluorescing agent that becomes visible under ultraviolet light only when an article such as a disposable diaper becomes wet.

  • Patent number: 8821772
    Abstract: A method comprising injection molding a plastic part from a polymer formulation comprising an injection moldable thermoplastic and a fluorescent compound, wherein the fluorescent compound has a decomposition temperature that establishes a maximum processing temperature for the polymer formulation. The fluorescent compound will thermally decompose to generate gaseous products causing visible bubble formation in the surface of the plastic part in response to exposure to a processing temperature that exceeds the decomposition temperature of the fluorescent compound. If the plastic part was processed without exposure to a processing temperature that exceeds the decomposition temperature of the fluorescent compound, then any fluorescent compound within the plastic part will cause the plastic part to fluoresce in response to exposure to black light. A suitable fluorescent compound may be, for example, selected from oxalates, carbamic acids, carbonic acids, diazocarbonyl compounds, and combinations thereof.

  • Patent number: 8815118
    Abstract: A method and system for assembling building blocks of colloidal particles and also for shaping of colloids for self-assembly for manufacturing, processing and formation of compositions of matter. A first type of particle is selected as a “key” particle constructed to mate with a “lock” particle, the binding arising from depletion forces. A variety of shapes can be used to carry out this method and system to create compositions of matter. Colloids can be shaped by controlled deformation of multiphase colloid particles.

  • Publication number: 20140231674
    Abstract: An aqueous ink jet printer ink composition is designed for ink jet printing of fluorescent images. This composition contains fluorescent pigment particles that have (1) an excitation peak wavelength of at least 300 nm and less than 400 nm, and (2) an emission peak that is greater than 400 nm and up to and including 700 nm when exposed to fluorescent-exciting radiation. The non-polymeric fluorescent pigment particles have a median particle size that is greater than 10 nm and up to and including 500 nm, and the 95th percentile fluorescent pigment particle size is less than 150 nm. The composition can be continuously printed on various pretreated or untreated receiver elements or articles to provide a fluorescent image that can be detected when excited at the appropriate wavelength. The fluorescent image can thus be used as a security or identification mark for various purposes.
