AME029  |  Switchable Materials Wettability for Controllable Oil-Water Separation

Wettability is a very important property of a solid surface, which is governed by the surface morphology and surface chemical composition. In recent years, more and more interest has been paid to the emerging area of the wettability at the water/solid interfaces. The design and preparation of a functional water/solid interface is very important for the materials used in aqueous medium, such as the microfluidics device for small droplet generation and manipulation. This technology presents a smart surface with switchable superoleophilicity and superoleophobicity in aqueous medium by a responsive block copolymer grafting strategy.

AME051  |  Anti-Static yet Non-Conductive Polymeric Materials

This technology introduces a method for fabricating polymers that resist charging against various reference materials based on copolymerizing an appropriate proportion of a molecule that has the tendency to charge positively and a molecule that has the tendency to charge negatively. Polymers fabricated using this method is structurally homogeneous and does not require further modification to attain the anti-static property. This invention overcomes the challenges faced in conventional approaches to eliminate static charge on polymers. Such approaches, which involves fabricating polymeric compositive materials, doping or adding antistatic agents, often change the properties of the polymer in unfavourable ways.

AME061  |  Nanocellulose from Organic Waste

Nanocellulose has been discovered to be a viable alternative to plastic because it is more environmentally friendly to manufacture. It can help reduce the society’s overdependence on plastic products, which are causing detrimental effects on our environment. Conventionally, nanocellulose is produced by reducing the crystalline fibre bundles to nano-sized particles. The reduction of the fibres bundles can be achieved either chemically or mechanically. This technology uses a ball milling technique and hommogenisation process to produce nanocellulose from organic waste.

Active Food Packaging Material

Contrary to conventional food packaging that is inert to the food; active food packaging has the ability to act against the contaminants and to remove them. This technology presents the use of the polymeric films comprising of halloysite nanotubes as a packaging material for food products. The said halloysite nanotubes are incorporated with active agents, such as antibacterial agents (preferably from a natural source) for providing antibacterial, barrier and ethylene scavenging properties.

AME070  |  Meeting Stringent Fire Safety Standards with a New Eco-Benign Polymer/Enabler

IPAS (Inorganic Polymer Aqueous Solution) technology presents a sustainable and viable alternative to conventional (compounds based on halogens and phosphorus) Flame Retardant (FR) mechanisms to satisfy stringent International Fire Safety Standards. IPAS provides absolute flame and thermal resistance—incombustibility—by protecting treated materials from coming into contact with oxygen. Whilst IPAS possesses the same level or better anti-flammability and mechanical/physical properties than conventional FR systems, it poses little harm to humans and the environment. IPAS has an easily scalable process, can be made available in various forms for specific industrial needs.

USS014  |  Floating Controlled-release Systems for Extended Treatment of Surface of Water Bodies

This technology is a porous, water-soluble and biodegradable polymeric matrix, capable of encapsulating practically any actives. It stays afloat on the surface of water bodies for extended time periods, while releasing actives at predetermined dosages throughout the treatment period, bringing about the desired effect. This technology is currently applied to the control and eradication of mosquito larvae as well as surface algae. Potentially, it can be applied to other applications including bioremediation. Implementing this technology significantly lowers treatment cost, reduces the negative environmental impact of the actives, and improves treatment effectiveness.

USS056  |  Biotoxin Adsorption Toxin Tracking (BATT) Device

Biotoxin Adsorption Toxin Tracking (BATT) Device is a monitoring and research tool that gives early warning on tropical algal blooms or shellfish contamination by accumulating toxins that are below detection limit. BATT offers many advantages compared to the conventional monitoring and research procedures. Initially intended for lipophilic or hydrophobic toxins, this device could be adapted for polar toxins (i.e. saxitoxin and domoic acid) with method refinement and development.
