Synthesis of p-Xylene by Dehydroaromatization of 3-Methyleneheptane obtained from Ethylene
Invention Summary:p-Xylene is mostly produced from cracking of naphtha, but there is a need for new and cost-effective methods for the production. Indeed, conventional p-xylene synthesis requires toluene separation from refinery gasoline streams; performing a disproportionation reaction to yield a benzene fraction and a mixed xylene fraction; and ...

Nanophotonic radiative decay rate engineering for stable, phosphorescent emission of blue light
The radiative and non-radiative decay rate of phosphorescent emitting materials can be tuned by the geometry of the nanostructure (NP).Invention Summary: Blue-emitting, phosphorescent organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) have high efficiency but low stability. As a result, the less efficient fluorescent materials are typically used in OLEDs to ext...

Novel Quantitative & Objective Analytical Tool for Detecting Neurodevelopmental Delays in Infants
Invention Summary: Neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g. autism) are on the rise. They are the byproduct of a lengthy maturation process that starts at conception and manifests disarray with high certainty during infancy, when dysfunction of the child’s nervous systems becomes apparent to the naked eye. By three years of age, observational diagn...

Novel Quantitative Analytical Tool for Assessing Neurological Functions in Human Subjects
Tracking statistical signals from both mental and physical activitiesInvention Summary: Cognitive Neuroscience research uses cortical-related activity to infer various functional and anatomical aspects of the brain. However, this is done in a rather disembodied way, discounting the feedback from bodily biorhythms. In contrast, fields like Behaviora...
