  • Patent number: 9926505
    Abstract: A method to generate dense, multi-cyclic diamondoid fuels from bio-derived sesquiterpenes. This process can be conducted with both heterogeneous and homogenous catalysts and produces the targeted isomers in high yield. The resulting multi-cyclic structures impart significantly higher densities and volumetric net heats of combustion while maintaining low viscosities which allow for use at low temperature/high altitude. Moreover, bio-derived sesquiterpenes can be produced from renewable biomass sources. Use of these fuels will decrease Navy dependence on fossil fuels and will also reduce net carbon emissions.

    Abstract: A preferred embodiment of the present invention is directed generally to a composition of matter and, more specifically, to a composition comprising a petroleum substitute produced from renewable, woody tree-based sources through a solvent extraction process. The woody tree sources are typically hydrocarbon-bearing trees or shrubs capable of producing significant quantities of liquid terpenes such that the process of extracting hydrocarbons from the woody tree material is economically viable. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the woody tree material is derived from pine or eucalyptus trees, or a combination thereof. These tree species contain relatively large quantities of relatively low molecular weight hydrocarbons. A raw woody tree biomass is processed into a plurality of solvent-permeable wood particles. Naturally occurring hydrocarbons found in the wood particles are then extracted using an organic solvent extraction process.

  • Publication number: 20100190985
    Abstract: This invention is related to heteroatom containing diamondoids (i.e., “heterodiamondoids”) which are compounds having a diamondoid nucleus in which one or more of the diamondoid nucleus carbons has been substitutionally replaced with a noncarbon atom. These heteroatom substituents impart desirable properties to the diamondoid. In addition, the heterodiamondoids are functionalized affording compounds carrying one or more functional groups covalently pendant therefrom. This invention is further related to polymerizable functionalized heterodiamondoids. In a preferred aspect of this invention the diamondoid nuclei are triamantane and higher diamondoid nuclei. In another preferred aspect, the heteroatoms are selected to give rise to diamondoid materials which can serve as n- and p-type materials in electronic devices can serve as optically active materials.
