21. Nanoparticle Released from Consumer Products: Flooring Nanocoatings and Interior Nanopaints
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1835
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/21/2014
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Nanoparticles are increasingly incorporated in flooring coatings and interior paints to improve their abrasion and microbial resistance. One particular concern of this application is the release of nanoparticles from these surfaces due to repeated m ...

22. Standards Related to Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8012
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/7/2014
Authors: Gregory W Vogl, Brian A Weiss, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: Prognostics and health management (PHM) systems are utilized to reduce burdensome maintenance tasks of monitored products or processes through diagnostics and prognostics, which provide actionable information that support decision-making for impr ...

23. Horizontal Convective Boiling of R134a, R1234yf/R134a, and R1234ze(E)within a Micro-Fin Tube
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/24/2014
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, ki-jung park
Abstract: This report presents local convective boiling measurements in a micro-fin tube for R134a and two low global warming potential (GWP ) refrigerants: R1234yf/ R134a, 56/44 % mass and R1234ze(E). The heat transfer coefficient of the three test fluids w ...

24. Effects of Temperature on Surface Accumulation and Release of Silica Nanoparticles in an Epoxy Nanocoating Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/16/2014
Authors: Chun-Chieh Tien, Ching-Hsuan Chang, Bernard Hao-Chih Liu, Deborah L Stanley, Savelas A Rabb, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocoatings are increasingly used outdoors and in harsh environments. However, because most common polymers degraded by the weathering elements, nanoparticles in polymer nanocoatings may be released into the environments. Such nanoparticle r ...

25. Capturing Carbon Dioxide as a Polymer from Natural Gas
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/3/2014
Authors: Chih-Chau Hwang, Josiah J. Tour, Carter Kittrell, Laura Espinal, Jim M. Tour, Lawrence Alemany
Abstract: Natural gas is considered the cleanest and recently the most abundant fossil fuel source, yet when it is extracted from wells, it often contains >10 mole% CO2 which is generally vented to the atmosphere. Efforts are underway to contain this CO2 ...

26. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M. Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

27. Beyond Standard Efficiency Ratings
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/6/2014
Author: David A Yashar
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=915884

28. Pressure-controlled advanced distillation curve analysis and rotational viscometry of swine manure pyrolysis oil
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/26/2014
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Pyrolysis is an effective method of converting agricultural byproducts to a tarry complex fluid suitable for use as a liquid fuel. While superficially similar in appearance to crude petroleum, pyrolysis oil contains significantly more oxygenated and ...

29. A Quantitative Study of Nanoparticle Release from Nanocoatings Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/7/2014
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Savelas A Rabb, Xiaohong Gu, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Nanoparticles are increasingly used in polymer coatings (i.e., nanocoatings) to improve multiple properties of traditional coatings such as mechanical, electrical, gas barrier, and UV resistance. These high performance nanocoatings are often used in ...

30. Thermal decomposition kinetics of the thermally stable jet fuels JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: Raina V. Gough, Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The global thermal decomposition kinetics of JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900 were studied. Decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 °C in stainless-steel ampule reactors. At each temperature, the extent of decomposition as a function o ...
