High-Flux Thin-Film Nanocomposite Reverse Osmosis Membrane for Desalination
Use of nanofiber composites to create a higher filtration rate in reverse osmosis for energy efficient separation Background: Reverse osmosis (RO) is one of the most energy efficient separation technologies to remove salt ions from brackish water or seawater. Conventional RO membranes possess a thin film composite (TFC) structure, containing an ultra-thin...

A Novel PET Imaging Agent for Diagnosing Bacterial Infections
A PET tracer, [18F]F-PABA which is taken up only by bacterial cells thus making it specific for diagnosing infection. Background: Bacterial infections such as those of prosthetic joints, bones (osteomyelitis) and heart valves (infective endocarditis) are difficult to diagnose and treat, and are a major cause of mortality, morbidity and health care...
