Biodegradation behavior of bacterial-based polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) and DDGS composites
(Green Chemistry, 2014)
The extensive use of plastics in agriculture has increased the need for development and implementation of polymer materials that can degrade in soils under natural conditions. The biodegradation behavior in soil of ...
Asphaltene: structural characterization, molecular functionalization, and application as a low-cost filler in epoxy composites
(RSC Advances, 2015)
Asphaltene obtained by extraction from asphalt was investigated by different analytical techniques in order to characterize its composition, molecular structure and morphology. Then, the asphaltene molecules were successfully ...
Biorenewable polymer composites from tall oil-based polyamide and lignin-cellulose fiber
(Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2015)
Tall oil-based polyamide (PA) was blended with lignin-cellulose fiber (LCF), an inexpensive, highly abundant byproduct of the pulp and paper industries, to produce environmental-friendly thermoplastic biocomposites. The ...
Study of Physically Transient Insulating Materials as a Potential Platform for Transient Electronics and Bioelectronics
(Advanced Functional Materials, 2014)
Controlled degradation and transiency of materials is of significant importance in the design and fabrication of degradable and transient biomedical and electronic devices and platforms. Here, the synthesis of programmable ...
On the threshold of a hydrogen economy: The HOW of a Hydrogen Organized World
This presentation, given at Google, explains how liquid hydrogen could play a key role in a cleaner energy economy.
The HOW of a Hydrogen Organized Washington — Technical version
(MME Symposium Series, 9/17/2015)
This presentation provides the technical details for how hydrogen could be created, stored, and used as part of the energy economy in Washington state and beyond.
Anionic waterborne polyurethane dispersion from a bio-based ionic segment
(RSC Advances, 2014)
Anionic waterborne polyurethane dispersions were prepared from ring-opening epoxidized linseed oil with glycol and hydrochloric acid followed by saponification, step-growth polymerization, and ionomerization. When the ...
Retrofit of a Rubotherm ISOSORP® 2000 for PVT-x and sorption measurements at cryogenic temperatures
(Transactions of the Cryogenic Engineering Conference–CEC: Advances in Cryogenic Engineering, 2014)
Type V composite storage tanks have significantly increased the working pressures of cryogenic systems for aerospace applications. However, the current operating pressures often exceed the range of available mixture property ...
Drop-in Hydrogen Refueling Station
(DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office Webinar, 11/6/2014)
This presentation describes Washington State University's winning bid in the Hydrogen Student Design Contest, 2014. Students designed a low-cost, low-maintenance hydrogen fueling station module suitable for mass production.
HYdrogen Properties for Energy Research (HYPER)
(WSU Golden Grads, 9/11/2014)
This presentation describes projects at the Hydrogen Properties and Energy Research (HYPER) Lab at Washington State University, including unmanned aerial vehicle and hydrogen fuel storage research.
