University of Cincinnati's William Vanooij earns first Ohio Patent Award from Ohio Academy of Science
Date:3/30/2010

University of Cincinnati Engineering Professor Emeritus William Vanooij and co-inventors are receiving the first Ohio Patent Award from the Ohio Academy of Science (OAS) and the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) Intellectual Property Law Section. The award also recognizes their attorney, Martin J. Miller of Cincinnati.

Vanooij will receive an engraved plaque at the annual meeting of the Ohio Academy of Science on April 10, 2010.

Now retired from the University of Cincinnati, Vanooij is the chief scientist of his spin-off company, ECOSIL, which is a leader in the application of robust silane surface treatments for corrosion protection of many kinds of metals. Silanes are a type of silicon-bearing material used to increase adhesion of materials that otherwise would not stick to each other. Silanes can also be used to enhance paint adhesion.

ECOSIL is Vanooij's first company for which he won the Emerging Entrepreneur Faculty Award in 2005 and the Established Entrepreneur Faculty Award in 2009. Now that he is fully retired, much of his time is devoted to writing government proposals.

"We have been quite successful," Vanooij says, "We have won four of them already."

The company started out in the Hamilton County Business Center in Norwood at first, but soon expanded and since 2006 has been located in Fairfield, Ohio, near Jungle Jim's.

The patent he chose to submit for consideration was one that he had filed in the name of the University of Cincinnati in 2004. Besides himself, also listed on the patent are a former graduate student (who now works for a large company in upstate New York) and an engineer from a local company, who is now deceased.

"The patent had to be at least two years old, and should be one that could potentially generate jobs for Ohio," Vanooij explains. As the holder of 30 U.S. patents, he has a few from which to choose, you might say.

"This is a unique patent as it describ
