Anti-flammable Compounds and Adhesive Materials
This invention provides new chemical compositions and methods for the preparation of adhesive materials with low flammability. The low flammability is due to newly invented organic/polymeric components used in the adhesive formulation, rather than through the addition of a conventional anti-flammable additives such as halogenated organic molecules or phosphorous-containing structures.

More efficient, low energy manufacturing method for 2D Zeolites
Zeolites have found wide application in catalysis and separation processes due to their tunable pore structure and active sites, and they show remarkable stability in commercial use. Recently, ultra-thin two-dimensional (2D) zeolite nanosheets have been synthesized from zeolite precursors. These ultra-thin nanosheets show promise for high throughput separations and catalytic reactions involving bulky molecules. A commercially feasible synthesis method, however, has yet to be developed. State-of-the-art methods require high energy input and multiple processing steps, and give low yield and small nanosheet size.


Professors Winter and Fan have developed a simpler, lower energy method to synthesize ultra-thin 2D zeolite nanosheets from precursor zeolite materials, such as MCM-22 and ml-MFI. In the method, zeolite precusors can be subjected to either a short sonication or chaotic flow treatment in the presence of commercially available telechelic polymers, resulting in exfoliated zeolite nanosheets. While demonstrated in batch, this process can potentially be scaled and made continuous.
