  • Patent number: 4526984
    Abstract: A method is described for autoxidizing ortho-dialkyl substituted aromatic ethers directly to their corresponding carboxylic acid anhydrides. The method comprises autoxidizing the ethers in a first step in a solution of an aliphatic monocarboxylic acid having 2 to 8 carbon atoms to form a partially oxidized reaction mixture. The autoxidation of the partially oxidized mixture is continued in a second step after the addition of an anhydride of an aliphatic monocarboxylic acid having 3 to 8 carbon atoms and at a temperature of at least C. to form said anhydrides.The anhydrides are used in the preparation of organic high temperature polymers such as polyamideimides, polyimides, polyetherimides, and polyetherimideamides.

  • Patent number: 4264338
    Abstract: An improved process for the separation of gases by selective membrane diffusion or permeation by means of plural stages of membrane separation without increasing the work required by directing a permeant mixture from a second or later stage of separation to a recycle stage of membrane separation to provide a permeate enriched in the desired gas or gases and blending said permeate with the gaseous feed to said second or later stage of separation.
