Quick Click Pill Dispenser
Invention Summary: Most pharmaceutical dosing dispensing devices do not allow for single dosing and dose timing to be accessed simultaneously. A researcher at Rutgers has invented a new, compact and easy to use dosing pill dispenser device. It is able to perform two functions with a single click. To dispense a single dose and simultaneously change ...

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...
