US 2012/0028167 A1: Method For Preparing A Porous Polyimide Film and A Composite Membrane Comprising The Same (2021)
Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for preparing a porous polyimide film, comprising reacting an aromatic dianhydride with one or more aromatic diamines in a suitable solvent to form poly(amic acid), adding a dehydrated agent of an acid anhydride and an organic base to the reaction mixture to convert the poly(amic acid) to a polyimide precursor, casting the reaction mixture comprising the polyimide precursor onto a solid support to form a film, coagulating the polyimide precursor in a coagulating bath comprising a mixture of a solvent and a non-solvent to develop a porous structure, and drying the coagulated polyimide precursor in air to form the porous polyimide film. A composite membrane comprising same and its use are also provided.

US 2014/0371052 A1: A Method Of Synthesizing Tungsten Carbide Nanorods And Catalysts Formed Therewith (2016)
Abstract: A method of synthesizing tungsten carbide nanorods, the method comprising: mixing tungsten oxide (WO3) nanorods with a carbon source to obtain precursors; and calcining the precursors to obtain tungsten carbide nanorods, without use of any catalyst. A catalyst of metal nanostructures supported on tungsten carbide nanorods.
