  • Publication number: 20120037840
    Abstract: Methods and compositions for removing a contaminant from its environment. The method includes forming a magnetic composition comprising the contaminant and an amphiphilic substance, and applying a magnetic field to the magnetic composition so as to separate the magnetic composition from the environment. One composition includes a micelle array confined in a magnetic mesoporous framework. Another composition is formed by adhering an amphiphilic material comprising functional surface groups to a contaminant, then interacting a magnetic material with the functional surface groups of the amphiphilic material. In various versions, the contaminant can be a hydrophobic organic compound, or a fullerene-related nanoparticle. The methods can also be used to purify hydrophobic organic compounds or fullerene-related nanoparticles.

  • Patent number: 8105493
    Abstract: It is intended to provide a method capable of simply aggregating magnetic particles having a surface modified with a thermoresponsive polymer at a given temperature without heating or cooling an aqueous solution containing the magnetic particles, and a separation method and a detection method of a substance to be detected in a sample using the method. The method of separating a substance to be detected from a sample includes the steps of: mixing an adsorbent and the sample in an aqueous solution to adsorb the substance to be detected on the adsorbent, aggregating the adsorbent by changing a salt concentration in the aqueous solution; and collecting the adsorbent from the aqueous solution by a magnetic force, wherein said adsorbent comprises a magnetic particle of an average particle size of 50 to 1000 nm, a surface of which is modified with a thermoresponsive polymer and is immobilized with a substance having an affinity for the substance to be detected.

  • Patent number: 8075794
    Abstract: Provided is a magnetic graphite nanoplatelet, and a method of manufacturing nanocomposites by introducing the magnetic nanoplatelets into a composite matrix. Expanded crystalline graphite, in the form of graphite nanoplatelets, is mixed with magnetic particles to adhere the particles to the nanoplatelets. The magnetic graphite nanoplatelets are combined with a composite matrix, typically a polymer, to form a nanocomposite. In the presence of an applied magnetic field, the magnetic graphite nanoplatelets orient and align consistent with the magnetic field to yield a composite having enhance mechanical, electrical and thermal properties.

  • Publication number: 20110186771
    Abstract: A composite materil comprises magnetic particles dispersed in electrically insulating material. The magnetic particles have an aspect ratio greater than 1 (preferably greater than 10) and a concentration sufficiently high to produce negative permeability. The magnetic particles may be magnetic flakes of reduced carbonyl iron of average diameter 50 ?m, average thickness 1 ?m and aspect ratio 50, the magnetic flakes being at least 25% by volume of the composite material. The magnetic flakes may be aligned to produce enhanced permeability. The electrically insulating material may be paraffin wax, particulate PTFE, or another polymer. To control permittivity, the composite material may include an electrically conducting component such as graphite or conductive coatings upon the magnetic flakes.

  • Publication number: 20100257725
    Abstract: To provide a magnetic powder production method, a magnetic sheet production method, and an antenna module production method that are capable of reducing a size of magnetic particles, achieving thinning and a low loss, and improving magnetic permeability without lowering it. At least two oxide-based magnetic materials are mixed, preliminarily calcined, and pulverized. The pulverized magnetic materials are typically formed into a paste by being dispersed in an organic solvent, and the magnetic materials are applied onto a film after being subjected to defoaming processing. Accordingly, a sheet-like magnetic material is formed. The sheet-like magnetic material is cut into predetermined sizes so as to be fragmented into particles, with the result that magnetic particles are formed.
