New process for selective polysaccharide derivative oxidation
THE CHALLENGE Aqueous solubility and controllable release are essential for bioactive compounds. In the case of oral drug delivery, poor aqueous solubility of a drug can lead to low bioavailability. For poorly bioavailable drugs, higher doses are required to achieve a therapeutic concentration in systemic circulation. This can in turn have negative...

Residual Glioblastoma and Glioma Cell Capture
THE CHALLENGE Physical removal of tumors in most cases cannot eradicate all the cancerous cells in the affected area. The cells that are left behind are known as residual tumor cells due to their inability to be removed. Some of these residual cells are also resistant to chemotherapy which make them particularly threatening as this is the primary method...

A Novel One-Pot Process for Synthesis of Graphene and Graphene-Derivatives from Coals
Graphene is a potential "miracle" material with superior properties of tensile strength, thermal and electrical conductivity, and corrosion resistance. Current graphite-based production processes result in very high priced graphene (a gram of graphene oxide can cost over $150), which acts as barrier for commercial exploitation of this remarkable...

Novel Production Method of Stink Bug Pheromone for Crop Protection
THE CHALLENGE In integrated pest management, synthetic pheromones are often deployed in traps or with trap crops to lure insects away from commercial crops. Currently these pheromones are chemically synthesized and applied to trap crops. This form of production has limited sustainability and there are difficulties with high yield production. Therefore,...
