Patents' search is increasingly critical for a company's technological advancement and sustainable marketing strategy. When most innovative designs are created collaboratively by a diverse team of researchers and technologists, patent knowledge management becomes time consuming with repeated efforts creating additional task conflicts. This research develops(More)
The radiolytic degradation of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) in air-equilibrated dilute solution was investigated. Complete degradation of MTBE can be achieved within 5 min of irradiation at 59.7 Gy/min. The observed first-order degradation rate constant, called dose constant, increased from 0.04 to 0.56 Gy(-1) as the concentration of MTBE decreased from(More)
Electrowetting on dielectric (EWOD) moving fluid by surface tension effects offers some advantages, including simplicity of fabrication, control of minute volumes, rapid mixing, low cost and others. This work presents a numerical model using a commercial software, CFD-ACE+, and an EWOD system including a microfluidic device, a microprocessor, electric(More)
A simple and sensitive method is described for the determination of picomolar amounts of C(1)-C(9) linear aliphatic aldehydes in waters containing heavy metal ions. In this method, aldehydes were first derivatized with 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) at optimized pH 1.8 for 30 min and analyzed by HPLC with UV detector at 365 nm. Factors affecting the(More)
The photochemical redox reactions of Cu(II)/alanine complexes have been studied in deaerated solutions over an extensive range of pH, Cu(II) concentration, and alanine concentration. Under irradiation, the ligand-to-metal charge transfer results in the reduction of Cu(II) to Cu(I) and the concomitant oxidation of alanine, which produces ammonia and(More)
Patents are critical intangible assets for enabling an enterprise's creation and technology. Patent knowledge management is a time consuming task that often dominates the valuable time of R&D staff. This research develops an intelligent recommendation methodology and system for efficient and effective patent search. The system provides an algorithm(More)
