*** University of Miami Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 9 -- The University of Miami, Miami, has been assigned a patent (8,304,537) developed by Massimiliano Tomasulo, Miami, and Francisco M. Raymo, Coral Gables, Fla., for a "use of oxazine compounds for making chromogenic materials." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Heterocyclic compounds incorporating a [1,3]oxazine ring may be used to make chromogenic materials. These molecules switch from a colorless state to a colored form upon addition of either acid or base. In both instances, the [1,3]oxazine ring opens in response to the pH change forming an indolium cation, after the addition of acid, or a phenolate anion, after the addition of base. Alternatively, the switch may occur in response to a change in electrical current or potential or a change in temperature. Chromophores absorb in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Hence, their formation translates into the appearance of color. These processes are fully reversible and the original colorless state can be regenerated by switching the pH back to neutral. Thus, these halochromic compounds can be used to develop displays, filters, indicators, lenses, sensors, switches, or windows able to switch their color in response to pH changes." The patent application was filed on Oct. 17, 2008 (12/733,887). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,04,537.PN.&OS=PN/83,04,537&RS=PN/83,04,537 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Sunovia Energy Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 9 -- Sunovia Energy Technologies, Sarasota, Fla., has been assigned a patent (8,304,970) developed by Donald VanderSluis, Sarasota, Fla., for a "light unit with induced convection heat sink." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A lighting fixture, such as a recessed or can type lighting fixture, has an external housing containing a number of LEDs used to provide light. The LEDs are connected to a power supply, and are mounted on a heat sink that includes heat-dissipating fins that are oriented vertically within a vertical portion of an internal flow tube. The internal flow tube may be U-shaped, with entry and exit points on opposite ends of the flow tube. The external housing and flow tube are oriented so as to create a path for air to rise along the heat sink as it is heated then flow back down along the unheated path of the flow tube. An air mover may also be placed in the flow tube to provide further air flow through the flow tube." The patent application was filed on June 2, 2009 (12/995,631). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,304,970.PN.&OS=PN/8,304,970&RS=PN/8,304,970 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
