  • Patent number: 7479473
    Abstract: A liquid and readily flowable composition includes (a) a room-temperature-solid solute, such as a nonionic surfactant, preferably having a hydrophile-lipophile balance from about 11.1 to about 18.4, a (ii) C8-C14 fatty acid, or combinations thereof; (b) an alkoxylated fatty alkanolamide; and (c) water, if needed. The alkoxylated fatty alkanolamide, which is substantially liquid at room temperature, solvates the solid solute to form a homogeneous composition which is liquid and readily flowable at room temperature. The select classes of nonionic surfactants include polyalkylene oxide carboxylic acid esters, ethoxylated fatty alcohols, poloxamers, alkyl polysaccharides, or combinations thereof. Useful alkoxylated fatty alkanolamides include propoxylated fatty ethanolamides.

  • Patent number: 7456139
    Abstract: A liquid and readily flowable composition includes (a) a room-temperature-solid solute comprising at least one nonionic surfactant, preferably having a hydrophile-lipophile balance from about 11.1 to about 18.8, (b) at least one fatty alkanolamide; and (c) water, if needed. The fatty alkanolamide, which is substantially liquid at room temperature, solvates the solid solute to form a homogeneous composition which is liquid and readily flowable at room temperature. The select classes of nonionic surfactants include polyalkylene oxide carboxylic acid esters, ethoxylated fatty alcohols, poloxamers, alkyl polysaccharides, or combinations thereof. Useful fatty alkanolamides include fatty diethanolamides.

  • Patent number: 7396803
    Abstract: Mixtures of water immiscible components and water dispersible components, in combination with an optional coemulsifier and an optional coupling agent, provide synthetic (water based) emulsions that have enhanced lubricity, provide excellent cooling characteristics, are low foaming and biostable and can be made effectively transparent.

  • Publication number: 20080138301
    Abstract: The properties of 2-pyrrolidone-4-carboxylic substituted polysiloxanes can be dramatically altered by increasing the presence of the carboxylic-substituted pyrrolidone monomer of the polysiloxane, such that the amidopolysiloxane has an acid equivalent weight of about 3:00-3,000 daltons and a molecular weight average Mw of about 1,000-60,000 daltons resulting in enhanced detergent and water solubilities and the ability to form water-in-oil emulsions thereby providing usefulness across a broad range of formulations having enhanced electrolytic and silicone and/or hydrocarbon compatibility and cleansing properties.
