20080274344METHOD TO PREPARE NANOPARTICLES ON POROUS MEDIUMS - A method to prepare porous medium decorated with nanoparticles involves contacting a suspension of nanoparticles in an ionic liquid with a porous medium such that the particles diffuse into the pores of the medium followed by heating the resulting composition to a temperature equal to or greater than the thermal decomposition temperature of the ionic liquid resulting in the removal of the liquid portion of the suspension. The nanoparticles can be a metal, an alloy, or a metal compound. The resulting compositions can be used as catalysts, sensors, or separators.11-06-2008
20090258213CARBON MATERIALS WITH INTERCONNECTED PORES - Methods of forming an electrically-conductive mesoporous carbon structure with interconnected pores or highly interconnected pores, and the resulting structures are described. The structure is formed by providing a mesoporous template, filling the mesopores with an organic precursor, polymerizing the organic precursor, pyrolyzing the polymerized organic precursor, and etching away the template.10-15-2009
20090263643USE OF SN AND PORE SIZE CONTROL TO IMPROVE BIOCOMPATIBILITY IN POLYCRYSTALLINE DIAMOND COMPACTS - Polycrystalline diamond compacts for use in artificial joints achieve reduced corrosion and improved biocompatibility through the use of solvent metal formulations containing tin and through the control of solvent metal pore size, particularly in inner layers of the compact. Solvent metal formulations containing tin have been discovered which provide sintering ability, part strength, and grind resistance comparable to levels achieved by using CoCrMo solvent metals. It has been discovered that limiting the solvent metal pore size in the diamond layers minimizes or eliminates the occurance of micro cracks in the solvent metal and significantly reduces the corrosion of the compact as manifested by the release of heavy metal ions from the compact. Polycrystalline diamond compacts which utilize both the solvent metal formulations containing tin and the control of pore sizes achieve significantly reduced corrosion and improved biocompatibility compared to prior art polycrystalline diamond compacts.10-22-2009
