    • Evaluations of a New Ionic Liquid Stationary Phase with PEG Like Selectivity Evaluations of a New Ionic Liquid Stationary Phase with PEG Like Selectivity Leonard M. Sidisky, Supelco R&D Manager Recorded: Oct 31 2012 3:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • Geminal dicationic and polyionic ionic liquids have been prepared for use as stationary phases in capillary gas chromatography. These materials are known to provide higher thermal stability for gas chromatography, broader liquid working ranges and broader selectivity ranges than monocationic ionic liquids and polymeric based stationary phases with similar polarity. Recently, a new ionic liquid stationary phase has been developed that provides a selectivity very similar to a polyethylene glycol (PEG) selectivity but with increased thermal stability and lower bleed. We will compare and contrast the similar but unique selectivity of this new phase with traditional PEG phases using a wide variety of different sample types. We will demonstrate the improved thermal stability and lower bleed through a series of different studies and applications.

    • Ionic liquid GC columns for the quantitation of trans fatty acids in fats & oils Ionic liquid GC columns for the quantitation of trans fatty acids in fats & oils Pierluigi Delmonte, Ph.D - U.S. Food and Drug Administration Recorded: May 16 2012 3:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    • The fatty acid composition of a fat or oil is most commonly assessed by gas chromatography, following conversion of the fatty acids methyl esters. The current most refined analytical methods for the quantitation of trans fatty acids rely on the separations provided by long cyanopropyl siloxane capillary columns. The introduction of capillary columns coated with ionic liquids, such as Supelco SLB-IL111, provide an alternative separation tool characterized by a higher stationary phase polarity and selectivity toward geometric and positional isomers of unsaturated fatty acids. The use of these novel capillary columns can provide more refined separations of complex lipid samples. As a result, most conjugated linoleic acid isomers (including t7,c9- and c9,t11-18:1 FA) can be quantitated in a single separation using a 100 m SLB-IL111 capillary column and most 18:1 FA positional and geometric isomers can be separated using a 200 m SLB-IL111. Ionic liquid columns provide more detailed FA profiles, especially for unsaturated fatty acid positional/geometric isomers.

    • Liquid-Cooled IT for the Masses:  Achieving a Data Center PUE of 1.1 Liquid-Cooled IT for the Masses: Achieving a Data Center PUE of 1.1 Tahir Cader, HP Servers Distinguished Technologist Recorded: Jan 22 2015 6:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • Data center energy efficiency is being attacked from numerous directions, including power distribution innovations, the creation of hardware better suited to customer applications (to drive better IT utilization), co-designing data centers with IT solutions, and cooling system innovations.

      With respect to cooling systems, the widely-recognized Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) from The Green Grid (TGG), which is a direct measure of data center energy efficiency, has been used to great effect to continuously drive down “traditional” air-cooled data center PUEs. In the high performance computing (HPC) space, where 40 kW+ rack power densities are commonplace, more aggressive cooling technologies such as liquid-cooling, are seeing rapid adoption. There is also increasing evidence that liquid-cooling is making its way into non-HPC data centers. The presentation will cover such topics as:

      · Data center energy efficiency trends
      · An overview of liquid-cooling technologies
      · The role that liquid-cooled IT is playing in driving improved energy efficiency – towards a PUE of 1.1
      · The challenges of implementing liquid-cooling in the IT and data centers

      The goal is to help demystify liquid-cooling. Finally, The Green Grid’s recently announced Liquid-Cooling Work Group will be described.

    • Planning for financings in volatile markets Planning for financings in volatile markets Anna Pinedo and James Tanenbaum, Morrison & Foerster; Brian Maier, Geoffrey Goodman and Gregory Ogborn, Wells Fargo Recorded: Jul 12 2016 3:00 pm UTC 102 mins
    • Volatile capital markets and the rapidly changing financial landscape make it important for issuers to recognise changes quickly and adjust their financing strategies accordingly.

      For example, for an issuer that contemplated an IPO or is in the IPO queue, it is important to become familiar with other financing alternatives, such as venture debt or late-stage or mezzanine debt, as well as institutional equity private placements. Each of these markets is quite different. Familiarity with investor expectations and documentation requirements is essential in order to put your company in the best position to make crisp decisions. For issuers that already have their securities listed on a non-US securities exchange, which may offer limited liquidity, it may be time to consider undertaking a US IPO in order to establish a more liquid market for their securities. Already public companies considering their next capital raise also must be nimble - a PIPE transaction may be an attractive (and available) financing alternative. During this session, the speakers will discuss:

      •Current market conditions;
      •Financing alternatives for pre-IPO companies;
      •The market for venture debt;
      •The late-stage (or cross-over) private placement market;
      •Options to consider on the way to an IPO;
      •The ReIPO™
      •Financing alternatives for recently public companies; and
      •PIPE transactions and other financing alternatives.

      The webinar's speakers will be:

      -Geoffrey Goodman, managing director, equity capital markets, Wells Fargo
      -Gregory Ogborn, director, equity capital markets, Wells Fargo
      -Brian Maier, vice chairman, Wells Fargo
      -Anna Pinedo, partner, Morrison & Foerster
      -James Tanenbaum, partner, Morrison & Foerster

      8.00 am PST / 11.00 am EST / 4.00 pm BST / 5.00 pm CET
      Duration: 30 minutes

      Exchange-traded funds represent the future of asset management, thanks to their ability to provide investors safe and liquid exposure to multiple asset classes. Some experts believe that total ETF assets under management may increase to as much as $10 trillion over the next five to eight years, up from a bit more than $3 trillion currently. Despite their furious growth, ETFs remain a mystery to most IROs.

      In this webinar we will discuss:

      - Understanding the impact that different types of ETFs may have when they appear in your shareholder register;
      - How ETFs may affect short-term volatility in your stock price and the composition of your shareholder base in the long term
      - How ETF flows are a key market signal and how, as an IRO, you can leverage them

      Speakers include:

      - Eric Balchunas, senior ETF analyst, Bloomberg
      - Irene Bauer, chief investment officer and founding partner, Twenty20 Investments
      - Laurie Havelock, business writer and journalist, IR Magazine

    • The New Dynamic: Exempt securities in the US & resales of restricted securities The New Dynamic: Exempt securities in the US & resales of restricted securities Anna Pinedo and David Lynn, Morrison & Foerster; Annemarie Tierney, NASDAQ; Tom Young, IFLR Recorded: Feb 24 2016 4:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    • The JOBS Act and more recently the FAST Act have brought about a number of changes to the framework governing offerings exempt from SEC registration. More and more US and non-US companies are choosing to rely on securities offerings that are exempt from the US registration requirements. In part as a result of these and other changes, there are now more sources of private capital and “restricted securities” have become more liquid. As a result, many more promising companies are choosing to defer their IPOs and rely on exempt offerings to fund their growth. We will discuss the following:

      How the JOBS Act has affected private placements;
      Late-stage private placements;
      The Regulation A market;
      The final crowdfunding regulations;
      Other exempt offering developments, such as intrastate offering changes; and
      Resales of restricted securities through private secondary market transactions as well as reliance on new Section 4(a)(7).

    • The Future of Data Centre Cooling? - 3M's Open Bath Technology The Future of Data Centre Cooling? - 3M's Open Bath Technology Phil Tuma, 3M Electronics Recorded: Jan 10 2012 11:00 am UTC 46 mins
    • The limitations of legacy air cooling schemes are by now well known. Even the latest free-air cooling technologies have limitations relating to primarily to power density and energy efficiency. While emerging technologies such as direct water cooling can dramatically increase efficiency, density and the thermodynamic availability of waste heat, these approaches add complexity, cost and risk that the commodity datacom industry may be unwilling to bear. Recently published work has suggested the utility of a new cooling strategy termed open bath immersion cooling for datacom equipment. In this simple concept, servers are immersed side-by-side in bath of nonflammable dielectric liquid that boils off the heat generating devices. The vapor so generated condenses on a coil cooled by facility water and passively falls back to the bath. The process takes place within modular semi-open baths, so-called because they are closed when access is not needed but operate at atmospheric. Power densities as high as 4kW/liter have been demonstrated with densely packed modules that simulate CPU packages. This presentation will include an overview of research to date including a comparison to existing pumped water systems and an introduction to a system-scale project currently in the proposal stage that would demonstrate the commercial viability of the technology.
      Phil Tuma is an Advanced Application Development Specialist in 3Ms Electronic Markets Materials Division in St. Paul, Minnesota USA. He is currently working to demonstrate the utility of passive 2-phase immersion for cooling power electronics and datacom hardware.
