Disclosed are sol gel derived materials obtained from at least one first precursor and at least one second precursor, as well as sol gel derived compositions containing a plurality of alkylsiloxy substituents obtained from such sol-gel derived materials.


Disclosed is a method for removing fatty oil from a surface containing the fatty oil comprising the steps of applying to the surface containing the fatty oil a composition comprising a sol-gel derived material, the sol-gel derived material including a plurality of alkylsiloxy substituents and the sol-gel derived material obtained from (RO)_(3)Si(CH_(2))Ar(CH_(2))_(m)Si(OR)_(3 )(1) where n and m are individually an integer from 1 to 8, Ar is a single-, fused-, or poly-aromatic ring, and each R is independently a C_(1 )to C_(5 )alkyl group and


Disclosed is a method for removing an ionic species contained in an aqueous phase. The method includes contacting an aqueous phase containing the ionic species with a sol-gel composite material, where the sol-gel composite material is a sol-gel composition having a porous matrix and containing a reactive metal incorporated into at least a portion of the porous matrix, under conditions sufficient to remove the ionic species contained in the aqueous phase.


Disclosed is a swellable, sorbent material formed of a sol-gel derived composition having a porous matrix and a sorbent property modifier intermixed with at least a portion of the porous matrix. The sorbent property modifier modifies a sorbent property of the sorbent material when compared to the same sorbent property of the corresponding, unmodified sol-gel derived composition.

ABSMaterials, Inc. of Wooster, Ohio has previously developed four important commercial innovations under SBIR development from the US Department of Energy and US National Science Foundation. These previous innovations, cleaning up water from brownfield sites and oil and gas drilling operations, have brought to the companys attention the difficult challenge of treating refinery waters for beneficial reuse. This SBIR IIB will build on the previous technology inventions allowing the company to attempt their innovative technology to energy efficient treatment of complex phenol and sulfur laden waters.
