  • Patent number: 10407556
    Abstract: Many different substrates are used in tissue engineering as platforms to enhance cell attachment, proliferation and activity, either in-vitro, to multiply specific cell lines, or in-vivo, to induce shorter healing time of injured or missing tissue. However, their hydrophobicity and lack of specific functionalities make them non-ideal for cell adhesion and growth. Treating the surfaces by exposing them to a series of steps including, but not limited to, a diazonium based wet chemistry allows one or more functional groups to be applied to the surface improving cell adhesion and growth. Embodiments of the invention exploiting PDLLA, PMMA and roughed PEEK are demonstrated including both a one-stage and a two-stage process, and at times a vacuum treatment, allowing modification of inner and outer surfaces.

  • Patent number: 9017773
    Abstract: A method is described for depositing nanostructures, such as nanostructures of conducting polymers, carbon nanostructures, or combinations thereof. The process comprises placing the nanostructures in a liquid composition comprising an immiscible combination of aqueous phase and an organic phase. The mixture is mixed for a period of time sufficient to form an emulsion and then allowed to stand undisturbed so that the phases are allowed to separate. As a result the nanostructure materials locate at the interface of the forming phases and are uniformly dispersed along that interface. A film of the nanostructure materials will then form on a substrate intersecting the interface, said substrate having been placed in the mixture before the phases are allowed to settle and separate.

  • Patent number: 8758926
    Abstract: Provided is a separator for an electrochemical device including a plate-like porous substrate, and a porous thin-film coating layer formed on at least one surface of the plate-like porous substrate and containing crosslinked polyester. The crosslinked polyester coating layer hardly affects the air permeability of the separator. Also, the crosslinked polyester coating layer has good hydrophilicity and wettability to an electrolyte, and thus improves the performance of the battery. Also, the crosslinked polyester coating layer has excellent resistance to heat and deformation, and thus prevents the thermal shrinkage of the separator.
