  • Recyclable Membranes for Size-Selective Separation of Nanoparticles (No. T4-1564)

    Scientist: Boris Rybtchinski

    A new recyclable size-selective filtration device. Particle size, chemical purity and dispersion of nanoparticles crucially determine their optical, electronic and chemical properties. Size-selective separation technologies are becoming increasingly important for the development of nanoparticles with well-defined sizes, ... Read more
  • Remediation of Polluted Water by Reductive Transformation Reactions (No. T4-1265)

    Scientist: Brian Berkowitz

    A Novel water treatment method capable of handling a wide spectrum of pollutants, both organic and metallic was developed by the group of Prof. Berkowitz and proven in large scale. The combination of ever-growing contamination from various sources (industry, agriculture and domestic uses), the toxicity of contaminating c ... Read more
  • Spin Controlled Water Electrolysis for Efficient Production of Hydrogen (No. T4-1753)

    Scientist: Ron Naaman

    A team of researchers lead by Prof. Naaman have been investigating the CISS effect in different systems. They found that the high efficiency of many natural multiple electron reactions can also be attributed to spin alignment of the electrons involved.The present innovation looks at hydrogen production through water elec ...
