Hydrogel Based Synthesis of Complex Ceramics

Executive Summary Ceramics are being widely used in a growing number of applications, such as thermoelectric devices, batteries, and nuclear reactors. However, the same desirable properties of ceramics (high melting point, high strength, chemically inert) make it highly difficult to produce ceramics with consistent material properties. Our technology...

Ambiently Dried Aerogel for Thermal Insulation in High-Temperature Applications

Introduction Innovators at Michigan State University (MSU) have developed a novel porous silica-based aerogel material and the process for its fabrication. In contrast to the supercritically dried aerogel, a related material, the MSU approach uses gel and liquid extraction. Evaporation of the precursor solvent is performed at room temperature and...

Hydrogel Microparticles for Targeted Drug Delivery

IntroductionDrug delivery is the process of administering a pharmaceutical compound to achieve a therapeutic effect. Drug delivery technologies can modify drug release profile, absorption, distribution, and elimination for the benefit of the patient. A current area of drug delivery research relates to targeted delivery models in which drugs are delivered...
