    Abstract: A multifunctional material composition functioning as a halogen-free flame-retardant finish combined with in certain implementations one or both of antimicrobial and insect-repellant is nanomanufactured by the absorption/adsorption of metallic salts with one or more additional compounds by inorganic crystallites. The identity of the additional compounds is determined by the desired functionality of the substrate. The material composition can be chemically and mechanically applied to substrates (e.g. to cotton, nylon, and polyester based textile fabrics), for example, to yield durable antimicrobial, insecticidal, and environmentally friendly flame retardant materials. The addition of nano-scale metallic deposits to a phosphorous-rich and nitrogen-rich architecture complex improves the flame retardant properties of the substrates.

  • Publication number: 20140319058
    Abstract: A novel metal-organic framework (MOF) templated process for the synthesis of highly porous inorganic sorbents for removing radionuclides, actinides, and heavy metals is disclosed. The highly porous nature of the MOFs leads to highly porous inorganic sorbents (such as oxides, phosphates, sulfides, etc) with accessible surface binding sites that are suitable for removing radionuclides from high level nuclear wastes, extracting uranium from acid mine drainage and seawater, and sequestering heavy metals from waste streams. In some cases, MOFs can be directly used for removing these metal ions as MOFs are converted to highly porous inorganic sorbents in situ.

  • Patent number: 8753601
    Abstract: Described is a method for the production of metal salts, wherein the cationic metal is preferably selected from Group I to IV metals and mixtures thereof and the anionic group is selected from phosphates, silicates, sulfates, carbonates, hydroxides, fluorides and mixtures thereof, and wherein said method comprises forming a mixture of at least one metal source that is a metal carboxylate with a mean carbon value per carboxylate group of at least 3 and at least one anion source into droplets and oxiding said droplets in a high temperature environment, preferably a flame. This method is especially suited for the production of calcium phosphate biomaterials such as hydroxyapatite (HAp,Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP,Ca3(PO4)2) that exhibit excellent biocompatibility and osteoconductivity and therefore are widely used for reparation of bony or periodontal defects, coating of metallic implants and bone space fillers.

  • Publication number: 20140162364
    Abstract: A method for producing a porous calcium polyphosphate structure, which comprises the steps of mixing monocalcium phosphate (MCP) with silicic acid, and sintering the mixture at a predefined temperature or temperatures for a predefined time, after which the porous calcium polyphosphate is obtained. The method allows a porous biomaterial with a controllable porosity to be obtained, and which also has the ability to activate the platelets in a plasma rich in platelets and cause the release of growth factors from the platelets.
